As you may remember from last month’s issue, the PHD Club and Psi Chi formed a joint team for the NAMIWalk this year. On September 26th, more than 20 students and faculty got out and walked for NAMI and, collectively, raised more than $1,500 for the cause! That money will be used for support, advocacy, and education initiatives throughout Brown County. Thanks so much to all those who walked.
The Psychology and Human Development (P/HD) Club is an organization here on campus designed to bring together students who are majoring or minoring in Psychology or Human Development or those who are just interested in the events! We have a host of fun events planned for the coming semester, and we hope you will join us!
Here is what we have planned so far:
- First Meetings: September 22nd @ 7 pm in the 1965 Room or September 23rd @ 5 pm in the Wequiok Room (the same information will be covered at both meetings, so you only need to attend one).
- Club Meeting: October 4th @ 5 pm in the 1965 Room or October 5th @ 5 pm in the 1965 Room (again, the same information will be covered at both meetings).
- Movie Night: October 6th @ 6:30 pm in MAC 210 - the movie is Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia.
- Graduate School Series
- September 30th @ 5 pm in MAC 208: General Graduate School Info (open to everyone, but particularly targeted at first and second year students who want to know more about graduate school, what it takes to get in, why they should go, etc.).
- October 12th @ 5 pm in MAC 206: Writing Your Personal Statement (again, open to everyone, but targeted at students who are in the midst of the application process or just starting the process).
If you have any questions about the club or want to join our mailing list, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Like every year, the P/HD Club and Psi Chi are getting out to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by walking in the NAMIWalk. This year, though, they are combining forces to put together one Super-Team by walking together – and they want you to join them.
For those of you unfamiliar with NAMI, it is an advocacy group with the mission of improving the quality of life for those affected by mental illness, and NAMIWalks is an event designed to raise money and awareness. This year, the 3.1 mile walk will be on Sunday, September 26th, at 10:30 am (check-in time is at 9:00 am), at Green Isle Park. Please note that, for you die-hard Packer fans, there is no game that Sunday so you won’t be missing out.
To join the team, click here and click on “Join an Existing Team.” The website will take you through how to create an account and join a team. Our team is called the UWGB Psychology and Human Development Club/Psi Chi Team, and Kaitlyn Florer and Amanda Luedtke are the team captains. In the past, the team has arranged to carpool in order to help out those students who don’t have transportation. So, if you want to walk but don’t have a ride, contact Kaitlyn or Amanda to see if they can help you arrange something.
For those of you who aren’t interested in the walk or can’t participate that day but would like to know more about NAMI, here are the links to NAMI National and NAMI Brown County. If you have any questions, please direct them toward Kaitlyn, Amanda, or Dr. Ryan Martin. Hope to see you there!
The annual end-of-year picnic, co-sponsored by the P/HD Club and Psi Chi, is on Friday, May 7th from 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. at Lambeau Cottage (part of the UWGB campus – located right on the Bay and off Nicolet Drive). All students and faculty are invited to celebrate the last day of classes and to enjoy a free cook-out. Drop in anytime!

This event will take place Tuesday, April 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the 1965 Room of the University Union.
I would also like to introduce the P/HD Club’s newly elected officers, who will serve for the academic year 2010-2011. Please congratulate them accordingly. I would like to thank them for taking on this responsibility, and I know that we will see great things happening with the club in the future!
