Psi Chi News

Hello and welcome back!

First of all, let me introduce you to the 2011-2012 Psi Chi officers:

Kaitlyn/Kate Florer – President

Erin Ehlers – Vice President

Molly Swenty – Treasurer

Emma Bretl – Secretary

Amber Kasten – Officer of Communications

Psi Chi is adding some new types of events to its repertoire, and we hope you’ll join us! Here are some of our upcoming events:

October 6th @ 4:00 pm: First Journal Club Meeting – We will be reading and discussing an article in a casual and enjoyable setting. More information about this will be coming out soon, so keep an eye on your e-mail, facebook, orgsync, etc.

Grant Writing Workshop: This workshop will be ongoing throughout the school year, and those who wish to participate in it will meet either once or twice a month as needed. Psi Chi is an international society, and it has a lot of money that it loves giving away to students for research or award purposes. Writing a grant is definitely a challenge and requires a fair amount of time and dedication, but that is why we created the workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to meet with fellow Psi Chi members who are working on their grants. This way we can ask each other questions, bounce ideas off each other, peer review drafts, and hold each other accountable on meeting deadlines. We recently had our first meeting, but if you are interested in this group/workshop, please let me (Kaitlyn) know ASAP!

Invitations to new invitees went out this last week. We hope to have you all join us as fellow Psi Chi members! If you have any questions about Psi Chi, please feel free to contact me at
