Officer Testimonials

"When I started at UNI, I did not know what I wanted to do with my major. I knew there were many directions I could go, but I had no idea how to narrow down my options. The psychology courses here are great and helped to make my decision. Psych club has been influential as well, with topics such as resume/vita building, grad student panel, and the professor gossip night. I have met so many wonderful people through Psych Club, Psi Chi, and my various classes, and I hope that I can stay in touch with some and call them my colleagues later in life. I would encourage anyone who is wondering what to do with a Psychology major to join us in our meeting and make connections with other students. Or, if you know what you want to do, you can help others in their decision-making process!"

 - Jessica Woodward

"Psychology Club and Psi Chi have progressed my education in understanding the layout of a career path in psychology. It is a great way to not only meet future colleagues, but build personal experience and increase successful outcomes as well."
