Students at the physics department at Loyola are among the most active on campus in terms of their involvement with research, commitment and participation in various outreach programs mainly aimed at energizing school kids towards science. They also participate in on-campus events such as the President's open house and the Monroe Rededication Ceremony. The Loyola physics students fully deserved their recognition as a "distinguished" chapter by the National Student Physics Society.
"Chapter recognition was determined by a careful review of chapter reports using the Chapter Report Rubric. Reviewers gauge how well the report conveys the chapter's participation in interactions and activities that center around the mission statement for SPS." - SPS Website
