The Psi Beta/Psychology Club at LCC encourages professional development and psychological literacy of students through generating interest in psychology, promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research and community service.
The goal is to promote the field of psychology on campus through social events, career events and the promotion of mental wellness, according to Faculty Adviser Diane Snyder.
“We tend to try to make psychology more visible on LCC’s campus, as well as the issues that are related to psychology,” Snyder said.
The club is open to all students regardless of their major. Weekly meetings are held every Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Gannon Building in room 2302.
There will also be a career night hosted by the Psi Beta/Psychology Club on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Arts and Sciences Building.
Flynn Taylor, a student member of the club, said she finds comfort within the club being surrounded by people who are interested in all things psychology, as well as promoting awareness regarding psychology issues.
“Besides being able to socialize with members, I think the topics we discuss are important and they help me gain a better understanding on psychology issues,” Taylor said.
Taylor expressed that her favorite thing about the club is the ability to mix leisure and social activities, as well as being able to do things they feel are important to the school and psychology community.
Taylor recommended the club to any student on campus who has an interest in psychology.
