What is Psych Club?
Welcome to the Psychology Club at Claremont McKenna College. Under the expert supervision of Prof. Alison Harris, we are run by CMC students for students who express any interest in all-things-psychology! The club is also the home of CMC’s chapter of Psi Chi, the national honors society for psychology.
Our goal is to promote student interaction and provide information about a range of topics relevant to the major. We are a resource to all students who are interested in psychology; we also provide funding for expenses related to the Senior Thesis in Psychology. There are biweekly lunch meetings at Collins and various other events throughout the year, including de-stress events and talks hosted by experts in the field. Check our Facebook for the latest calendar of events!
We meet every second Tuesday from 12:15 – 1:15 and at various other times during the year.
