The Psychological Society offers students the opportunity to share information and to form a network of friends with a similar interest in psychology. A variety of activities are offered each semester to accomplish this mission. Some of these activities involve service to the local community, such as: volunteering at a homeless shelter, taking a field trip to the Field Station of the Yerkes Regional Primate Center, and cleaning/painting at the Harbor House. Other activities just involve fun and friendship, such as: cookouts at the House of Dreams, volleyball socials (including the student-professor volleyball challenge), pumpkin carving, and alumni night. As an active organization, Psych Society is an excellent way to enhance your experience in the Psychology program.
Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929, for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the society's academic requirements.
If you are interested in Psi Chi membership, please contact either of the faculty advisers: Dr. Susan Conradsen or Dr. Victor Bissonnette.
