Psi Chi

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
