Congratulations Class of 2017!


From the bottom of our hearts, congratulations to all our Psi Chi members who will be graduating this weekend!

Your hard work and long quarters have finally paid off, so we hope you will take some a well-deserved break to celebrate with your friends and family! We wish you the best of luck as you go forward, and as lifelong members of Psi Chi, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Congratulations to the class of 2017!


Volunteers Needed!

Psi Chi is looking for volunteers to help out at the Psychology Department graduation ceremony this weekend! If you still need to get event credit for this quarter this is your last opportunity.

The ceremony starts at 11:00 am on Friday, June 16th, and volunteers would need to arrive around 10:00 am. If you are interested in volunteering, please send us an email at or fill out the volunteer google form soon!

Remember, to be considered active for the quarter you need to attend one (1) event and one (1) fundraiser. Because we did not host a fundraiser this quarter, you may use two (2) events to qualify. Being an active member is the only way to earn a Psi Chi cord to wear to your own graduation, so if you want one of those sweet blue and silver cords make sure you’re attending events and getting credit for them!

Study with Psi Chi – June 10!

Does this count as an event? Yes, this is a great opportunity to satisfy an event requirement before the quarter ends.
