Each spring, eligible students are notified and invited to participate. For more information, please visit http://www.psichi.org/ or contact Dr. Kashino in the Psychology Department.
The Psychology Club spends much of its time together raising money for charity and engaging in community service activities.
The Psychology Club sponsors TGIF (Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Pediatric Cancer and "Sing like nobody is listening"), "Cooks for Kids" at the Ronald McDonald House, bake sales and basket raffles. It also participates in a Talent Showcase, where proceeds are donated to Big Brother Big Sister and Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Club Officers plan to have a clinical psychologist to speak to the club this year and participate in other academic related topics. Finally, the club is planning to host a conference next spring.
Prospective members get involved by coming to interest meetings at the start of each semester and participating in club events..
The Psychology Club meets two to three times a month.
