Psychology Club is a group of students at Northern Arizona University who share a passion for psychology regardless of their majors or minors. Meetings include academic workshops, fun social events, guest speakers, and many opportunities to meet students and faculty with similar interests! Members gain access to faculty research presentations, graduate school panels, and individual or faculty research opportunities. They also are provided academic resources, such as KAPLAN test prep and tutoring. Psychology Club participates in several philanthropy and charity related events throughout both semesters, such as the Halloween Ball during the fall semester and Relay for Life in the spring semester. The club also hosts several other fun academic or social events throughout the school year, such as Neuro November, fundraisers, game nights, and more! Free food is also present at every member meeting. Flyers for the club meetings and events can be found around campus at places such as the Union or Social and Behavioral Sciences buildings. There are no prerequisites to membership in this club, we welcome both psychology and non-psychology majors.
