Student Organizations


The campus has an active Physics and Astronomy Club that welcomes all students of any major. The club is most known for hosting public planetarium shows and for organizing trips to conferences hosted by the American Physical Society. In recent years the Physics and Astronomy Club has participated in public education events such as NanoDays at The Science Discovery Center. Past club events also include a trip to Howe Caverns and overnight stays at College Camp lodge where club members do anything from homework to watching movies to building robots.

The campus also has a chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS). Over the last 25 years, more than 100 high-ranking Oneonta students have been inducted into this organization. Visit our awards page to view who they are.
