Psychology Club

The Simpson College Psychology Club is a student led organization that promotes social and educational activities for psychology students.  Psychology Club events provide information on topics such as graduate school and getting a job, foster productive relationships with faculty mentors, and explore new and interesting topics in psychology.  The best way to get connected is through the club’s Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/SimpsonCollegePsychologyClub

We meet once every other week, look out for times and spaces on the Simpson Events Calendar sent out daily via email or the Facebook page. 2014-2015 events include: fall faculty panel, spring future grad panel, keynote topics by each member of the department, movie nights, officer elections, grad school recruiter visits, and hopefully our very own Psychology graduate “Mocktails” hosted with Student Alumni Association!  Our faculty advisor is Dr. Evans. For more information or if you are interested in getting involved please contact Dr. Evans or our officers:
