Psych Club

What is Psi Chi?

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology. Every Spring, CMC Psi Chi officers determine eligibility for membership and invite these students to apply for lifetime membership. For information on joining Psi Chi, visit the Psi Chi website.

What is Psych Club?

Our mission is to represent the psychology community within CMC and to provide a resource to students who are interested in the field. Meetings will promote student interaction and will provide information about a range of topics relevant to the major. In the 2015-2016 academic year, we invited cognitive psychologist Paul Merritt to speak at the Athenaeum, supported various other Psychology Department events, and organized a finals week de-stress event with free ice cream sandwiches. We also entertain applications for Senior Thesis Funding.

The club is run by elected CMC psych majors under the supervision of Professor Piercarlo Valdesolo. It is also the home of CMC’s chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society for psychology. For more information about Psi Chi and how to become a member visit Psi Chi-CMC. We meet every second Thursday from 12:15 - 1:15 pm for lunch in Collins and at various other times during the semester for fun events.
