Psych Alliance: Psychology Club and Psi Chi
Psychology club, or "psych" club as it is commonly known on campus, is a club committed to promoting knowledge and the appreciation of psychology to students through an assortment of social and educational activities. The club was established as a forum for all those interested in psychology. Anyone with an interest in psychology (major or not) is encouraged to attend club meetings and become an active member.
Meetings: The Psychology Club meets every Tuesday from 12:30-1:30pm in the Psychology Department Library (Engleman D055a).
