TU students earn physics scholarship, chapter achievement award

Summer can be a time of kicking up your feet and relaxing at the beach, but not for Towson University physics major Nathan Prins or the members of TU’s chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

Prins received a $2,000 leadership scholarship from the Society of Physics Students (SPS). He was selected from a group of exceptional applicants from across the country in this year’s scholarship competition. He will be in the upcoming issue of The SPS Observer as well as Radiations.

A junior pursuing a degree in general physics with a minor in mathematics, Prins has served as vice president and president of TU’s SPS chapter. In those roles he focused on promoting outreach activities and transitioning to a more organized club. He has been awarded multiple international research opportunities and has specialized in cosmology, astrophysics and condensed matter while at Towson.

The brothers of Towson U’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon (pictured below) received one of only a handful of chapter achievement awards at the 80th-annual John O. Mosely Leadership School from August 3-7.

Delegates from chapters around the nation gathered to explore their leadership abilities, and learn new skills. The Chapter Achievement Award is earned by the best chapters in the fraternity that excel in the core areas of chapter operations.
