The Psychology Club, together with Psi Chi is an informal club whose members include anyone interested in psychology. Our primary goal is education outside the classroom. We hope to provide an environment where everyone can come together and learn about psychology. There are a variety of ways Psychology Club hopes to accomplish this goal. We hold discussions among members and faculty, either through seminars or lectures in order to learn about aspects of psychology in a more in-depth manner.
We also hold lectures or discussions with people currently in the field to talk about their areas of interest and their experiences.
We also hold fund-raising events in the form of bake sales, and other charitable donations. Psychology Club also participates with some campus activities; however, it is not mandatory that all members participate. If you are interested in Psychology Club, please contact the Faculty Advisor Dr. Stephen Truhon or pick up an application in the Psychology Office or print one out here.
Here are a few events Psi Chi and Psychology Club are involved: Social events (bowling, dinners, concerts), Research Brown Bags (faculty and student research talks), Seminars of interest to students, Tours of Western State Hospital in Fall and Riverbend Maximum Security Prison in Spring, GHOST, Students Helping Students, Help an Elf, Homecoming, MudBowl, and others based on student interest. Please also see the bulletin board by room 206 for event listings, updates and officer information. Student participation is what makes both clubs and events great, so please get actively involved when possible.

Serve as a Psi Chi/Psychology Club Officer
Another great way to become involved is to serve as an officer of the two clubs. Positions include: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Historian, Events Coordinator, and Assistant Events Coordinator. The first five positions must be served by members of Psi Chi, with the events coordinator positions filled by either members. This is another great opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills as well as a responsibility to add to your vita or resume. If you are interested in one or more of the positions, please contact the Faculty Advisor, firstname.lastname@example.org.
