The Psychology and Human Development (P/HD) Club has several big events coming up and all students are invited. See below for a list of great events that are being sponsored by the P/HD Club over the next few weeks: 

  • Informational Meetings: They will be hosting two P/HD Club informational meetings on Tuesday, September 22nd and Thursday, September 24th at 5:00 pm in MAC 229. If you have ever been interested in what the P/HD Club does or have thought about becoming a member or an officer, join them for what should be valuable sessions. 
  • Meet the Professors Night: They will be hosting Meet the Professors Night on September 30th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the 1965 Room of the University Union. It will be an informal night of socializing, beverages, snacks, and fun.
  • NAMIWalk: They have again put together a team for the NAMIWalk. The NAMIWalk (September 26th at 10:00) is a 3.1 mile walk that raises money for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. To learn more about the walk or to join the P/HD club team, visit the following website: NAMIWalk
  • The Soloist: As part of Mental Illness Awareness Week, the P/HD Club will be showing the recent movie, The Soloist, the true life story of Nathaniel Ayers, a brilliant musician suffering from a severe mental illness. The film will be shown on October 8th, at 6:00 in RH 250.
  • Graduate School Series: The club is again hosting the Graduate School series, which includes three events on the first three Mondays of November (the 2nd, 9th, and 16th) from 5:00 to 6:00 – all in MAC 210. On November 2nd, the presentation will feature Drs. Burns and Martin and focus on providing general information about graduate school and the application process. This will be helpful for all students thinking about graduate school, even if you are just starting out your college career. November 9th will feature Drs. Bartell and Vespia, who will present on writing a great personal statement that will help you get noticed (in a good way) by the graduate school admissions committee. Finally, the November 16th presentation will be on resume/vita writing and will feature a speaker from Career Services.
