News and Events from the Psychology and Human Development Club and Psi Chi: A Message from the Presidents, Areanna Lakowske and Molly Swenty

Hi P/HD Club and Psi Chi Members! We have a few exciting events in the next couple of weeks and we would love to see you there!

 Monthly Meeting and Meet a Professor- November 12th, 4pm in MAC 201 

ROOM CHANGE!  With our fantastic attendance last month, we have decided to change our room location to MAC 201 so we will have more space.  Our monthly meeting will be at 4pm in MAC 201 on November 12th.  We will begin by discussing upcoming events and any new ideas that members would like to share.  Then Dr. Martin will be giving us a little presentation about his research on anger disorders.

 December 1st, Jingle Bell Walk/Run

We will be creating a Psi Chi/PHD team for this year’s Jingle Bell Walk/Run. The Jingle Bell Walk/Run aids in arthritis research. Registration is $22 before November 23rd and all participants will receive a long sleeve T-shirt with registration! The run/walk starts at 9 a.m. sharp and at 9:45 a.m. they will be having a post event celebration with hot soup and refreshments. Watch for the link to join our team in Psi Chi’s monthly email to members. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Molly Swenty at swenmm10@uwgb.edu.

 Holiday Celebration, December 10th, 4-6pm in MAC 210

With finals coming up, we thought it would be a fun idea to host a holiday celebration as our monthly meeting!  The festivities will take place on December 10th at 4 p.m. in MAC 210.  We will be providing treats and a classic holiday movie.  If you cannot come right at 4pm, please feel free to stop any time before 6pm! 

 Psi Chi has buttons for sale!

The buttons are pictured below. If you would like to purchase one, please contact Molly Swenty by email (swenmm10@uwgb.edu). Each button is $.50.

 P/HD Club and Psi Chi Officers

We are all super excited for Psi Chi this year! Here are some upcoming events that we hope you attend!

Oct. 8th @4pm in the Vista Conference Room: We will be having our general meeting and introducing our Professor of the Month! The Professor of the Month is new to Psi Chi this year. We will be picking our Professor of Month and inviting them to present at our Psi Chi meetings on any research they are conducting or other experiences they would like to share. Attend the meeting and find out who the Professor will be!

This one is a jump ahead, but it’s so exciting we need to bring it up now!

May 2-4, MPA in Chicago: MPA is an annual meeting, held in Chicago, that features research from leading psychologists across the nation. Students are invited to present their own work at MPA. If you would like more information on how YOU can present at MPA, please email myself (swenmm10@uwgb.edu) or Dr. Gurung for more information. The submission deadline is November 11, 2012. Details and instructions are available here.  Remember, you do not need to have data collected by the time you send in your proposal.

Every year MPA has a distinguished speaker for the year’s annual meeting. This year Albert Bandura has been announced as the distinguished speaker. As if presenting your own work weren’t enough or meeting numerous leading psychologists from across the nation, you ALSO can get a chance to listen to and meet Albert Bandura.

Once again, if you have any questions about Psi Chi, please feel free to contact me at swenmm10@uwgb.edu.
