The Psychology Club and Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, provide a scholarly and social environment for students interested in the scientific study of behavior. These groups present students the opportunity to learn more about their field of study.
Psychology club is a student organization open to any student with an interest in psychology, regardless of major or minor. The group plans activities such as off campus speakers, faculty presentations, discussions, social events, movie nights, volunteer opportunities, various informative workshops, and occasionally trips to mental health agencies in the community. Various psychology topics are discussed such as disorders, cognitive processes, research methods, possible careers, and graduate programs.
Psychology club meets every other Monday from 6-7 p.m. in Polk 72. No RSVP needed, just drop on by!
Feel free to email email@example.com if you would like to join the email list or if you have any questions! Also, you can check out our Facebook page group: http://tiny.cc/psychclubfacebook

Membership in Psi Chi serves as recognition for outstanding academic achievement. Psi Chi is further intended to foster academic, personal, and professional growth. To that end, membership in Psi Chi involves more than a "line on a resume", with active participation in Psi Chi including some or all of the following activities (depending on the semester): volunteer work (e.g., Hands on Oshkosh), charitable fundraising (e.g., Polar Plunge to raise money for the Wisconsin Special Olympics), club fundraising, collaborative research, activities to raise awareness on campus about psychological issues, social events with faculty members, and cooperative events with other branches of Psi Chi and Psychology Club.
More general information about Psi Chi can be found on their international website.
Eligibility requires the following:
- 3.4 GPA in psychology / 3.0 GPA overall
- 9 credits of psychology completed and a minimum of 3 credits of psychology earned at UW Oshkosh
- At least 45 credits completed overall
*These requirements must be reflected by the most recently completed semester (students that will be eligible at the end of the current semester can apply in the following semester).
Students who are interested in applying need to meet the above listed criteria and complete the following steps:
- Print out a current STAR report
- Complete the "Psi Chi Application Cover Sheet"
Fall Semester - TBD.
Spring Semester - Friday, Feb 20th, 2015, by 3:00 pm.

Application Review and Induction
Applications will be reviewed immediately after the announced deadline. Students who are eligible will be notified as quickly as possible.
If you are selected for lifelong membership in Psi Chi, admission will require payment of $70 ($55 membership fee, $15 contribution to club activities). This should be made as a check payable to "UW Oshkosh Foundation". You may drop off your fee to Dr. Chrobak (Polk 47) or Dr. Koch (Polk 51).
Students who complete these steps will be officially inducted during a banquet in the spring semester. However, they are strongly encouraged to attend meetings as soon as their application has been accepted (students will be added to the email distribution list upon acceptance).
