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

 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!
