Hey psychology students!

Thank you for helping make our annual fall barbeque a huge success! Because of you, we will be able to keep hosting awesome events of all sorts.

Want to know what's next? Well, listen up!

Are you feeling overwhelmed with school? Trying to decide which 200 level classes are going to help you the most in the end of your degree? Can't decide what you want to do with your degree? Want more information on how to get involved in  Grab a mentor! Our mentorship program has been providing information, opportunities, and a helping hand to psychology students of all shapes and sizes! You'll be paired one-on-one with a fellow undergraduate psychology student who's volunteered to help you make the most of your degree, academic or otherwise!

But what about grad school? I want to get my Master's degree in psychology, but I have no idea how to get started. What are the expectations? What are the deadlines? To whom should I talk if I want more information? Come out to our grad forum on Friday October 18th at 5:00 in BS-P 226! We'll have 3 graduate students speaking about their experience as a graduate psychology student with time for questions. Come out and learn more about the graduate experience!

Peer Mentorship Program

The Peer Mentorship program facilitates one-on-one interaction between a 3rd/4th-year student and a 1st/2nd-year student in psychology. An upper-year psychology student who meets the criteria to act as a mentor (please see application) will be assigned to a 1st/2nd year student who seeks peer guidance, advice, and support on academic or program-related issues. The assigned mentor will act as an information source for the school year.
