Psi Chi Activities
The Stetson chapter of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology was one of only 33 chapters (of the 1100 chapters worldwide) to be selected to receive a Model Chapter Award for the 2013-2014 academic year. The award is given to chapters who serve their communities with philanthropic and education events and can show a high level of dedication from their officers, members, and faculty adviser. The chapter received $100 and a certificate, which is displayed in the department.
Invitations and Induction
Each semester, the Stetson Chapter issues invitations and accepts new members. A formal induction occurs once a year, in the spring semester.
Every semester, Psi Chi students volunteer to tutor other students in various undergraduate classes, such as Introductory Psychology, Great Experiments, Behavioral Statistics, and Cognitive Psychology. A list of tutors and contact information is posted in the display case outside the department office.
Involvement in Professional Meetings.
Each year, we encourage members of the chapter and other Psychology majors to attend and/or participate in professional conventions such as the annual meeting of the Southeastern Psychological Association.
The Stetson Chapter is involved in a variety of special departmental events, including sponsoring panels of senior Psychology majors who have been applying to graduate schools and who are available to share their experience with other students planning to apply, hosting visits by guest speakers, assisting in getting feedback from students as part of the Psychology Department's annual self-evaluation, and organizing movie nights for Psychology majors.
