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, but also on-campus events such as Nano-days and President's day. Thus it's nice to note that Loyola was recognized as a "distinguished" chapter by the 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
