This fall in Orlando, the Society of Physics Students held its quadrennial "PhysCon" congress, bringing together undergraduates from all over the country. APS and its outreach website PhysicsCentral contributed to the festivities by hosting "Club Congress", a dance party complete with DJ and liquid nitrogen ice cream bar. The event was a huge success, drawing over 400 students who packed the dance floor to capacity. In the photo, Rhodes College students kick up their heels to a catchy tune. SPS is a program administered by the American Institute of Physics.
