Sigma Pi Sigma


Sigma Pi Sigma exists to honor outstanding scholarship in physics; to encourage interest in physics among students at all levels; to promote an attitude of service of its members towards their fellow students, colleagues, and the public; and to provide a fellowship of persons who have excelled in physics.

The Western Kentucky University chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma was established on May 25, 1960. The minimum requirements for membership are:

  • the completion of all core curriculum physics courses,
  • a GPA in all physics courses of at least 3.30/4.00 and an overall GPA of at least 3.00/4.00.

Each spring students who have met the requirements for admission into Sigma Pi Sigma are invited to become members and are formally inducted at the annual SPS banquet.


 A community of faculty, staff, and students engaged in better understanding the physical world.
