Getting involved with your department and your University is a great way to learn beyond the classroom, try new things, and find friends with the same interests as you.
Here are the student organizations within the Department of Psychology.
Psi Chi is the national honor society in psychology whose purpose is to recognize and promote excellence in the science and application of psychology in terms of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of psychology.
