The Psychology Club provides a variety of events and opportunities for Psychology majors. Throughout the year, the club sponsors videos and speakers on relevant topics. The club also hosts events that involve students and faculty in an informal setting. Such events include an introductory picnic early in the Fall semester, a "Meet Your Professors Night," and presentations on issues such as graduate school and careers. Psychology Club (in conjunction with the Psi Chi Honor Society) adopted Clare House, a local shelter for abused women and their children. In an effort to raise money, the Psychology Club has held an annual flower sale. Membership in the Psychology Club is based solely on participation. So, come out and support your department, university and community! Join the Facebook Group!
Psi Chi is the National Honors Society in Psychology. Membership in the society is based upon accumulated GPA for all post-high-school work. Admittance into Psi Chi can be gained with an overall GPA of 3.50 in your junior year or an overall GPA of 3.35 in your senior year. Psi Chi is also a service organization. Each year our chapter participates in a National Service Project. Past efforts have included eyeglasses for the needy and adopt-a-shelter (Clare House). The chapter functions in direct collaboration with the Psychology Club.
