It's Week 15 and we all know that ya'll are busy studying with finals. However, we are a bit sad to say that we had our last general meeting of the year!
We had a mini potluck with our members and we also brought In N' Out to our paid members. We all just relaxed and had a good time with one another!
To end this semester, we all just want to give a big thank you to all our members who attended our meetings. We hope that our meetings have helped ya'll in your academic journey! We want to make sure that we're providing resources for every single one of you that will be beneficial for ya'll in the end. As a chapter, we want to continue to better ourselves, so please, if you have any recommendations, please feel free to let any one of the E-board members know! You have a voice! We would love to hear your feedback so that we can make our meetings next semester even more fun and useful.
Thank you so much to our members and our faculty members who have been with us this far. Let's continue to do well and be there for each other next semester! Have a safe, warm, and Happy holidays.
Good luck with your studies and have a safe break!
It's already week 14! The semester is almost over ya'll!
For this week's general meeting we did an activity that was more laid back and chill. We know that ya'll have been busy studying, so this was a great way for our Psi Chi members to sit back and relax. We provided our members with mandala coloring templates! We all were able to sit together and color while Christmas music was playing in the background. We had some snacks that was provided for the members as well! It was a really good time, and a great way for all of us to de-stress.
Thank you to all of our members who came out and joined us!
Just a reminder that next week's meeting is our last meeting of the year and we are having a mini potluck!
Hello everyone! Happy Week 13!
For this week's general meeting we had an REU panel with our very own Psi Chi members! An REU is Research Experiences for Undergraduates that usually occurs during the summer. This panel was for students to gain more insight about how to apply to an REU and where to look for REU opportunities. Our panelists included Shea Duarte, Jessy Navarro, Beverly Cotter, and Karli Cheng. They each shared their experiences and was able to give valuable tips and advice for our fellow Psi Chi members. Thank you to our panelists!
We hope that this panel was able to help ya'll. Have a great rest of the week everyone!
How are ya'll doing? It is already Week 12! Now that we're in the second half of the semester it seems like the weeks are going by super quick!
Well, for this week's general meeting, our Vice President, Beverly, and President, Jessy, prepared a CV presentation! This presentation is definitely an informative one and will help members who are interested and going into graduate school or academia. This in-depth presentation touched base onto what is a curriculum vitae, the difference between one and a resume, and tips on how to construct a great CV! Beverly even showed the members her very own CV and Jessy also shared his resume. These were both very great examples, and hopefully the members were able to find the presentation useful!
If you missed out on this important presentation, the presentation is linked down below for you to look at. Please feel free to ask any questions if you have any!
Have a great week everyone!
Happy Week 11 everyone! It's almost the end of the semester... can ya'll believe it?
Well, for today's meeting, Raelene our Conference Chair prepared a very informative presentation about the Western Psychological Conference (WPA). It a psychology conference that is held every year. For this year's WPA it will be held in Pasadena! The conference will be much closer compared to last year, which was held in Portland, Oregon. Nonetheless, it is still going to be a great experience! We recommend all of our members to attend, but of course it is not mandatory. You also don't need to present to be able to attend! You'll be able to learn so much from others from this conference!
We hope that ya'll consider going to WPA academic year. There will be more information as the date gets closer, but we'll make sure to keep updating ya'll.
Thank you! Have a great rest of the week!
Good morning everyone! Can ya'll believe that it's already week 10? We know that it's midterm season, so make sure to take great care of yourselves!
For these past couple of weeks we have had great guest speakers come in and give their presentations to Psi Chi, and we are so honored and thankful for every single one of them. However, for this week's meeting we decided to take a little break from the presentations and do something a little more fun and laid back. We took a personality test to figure out our personality types, and at the end, we got into our personality groups and just shared our similarities and differences! It was so nice to see everyone bond and know each other a little more. If you didn't attend the meeting, but would like to know your personality type you can visit https://www.16personalities.com/.
We also passed out our new Psi Chi shirts to those who paid their yearly dues! If you have paid your yearly dues, but didn't get a chance to come to the meeting to come get your shirt, then you can let anyone of the E=board members know and we can give it to you. If not, then you can always get them at our next meeting!
Hope ya'll have a great rest of the week. Take care everyone!
Happy Week 9 everyone! It's almost the end of the month!
For this week's general meeting we had one of our most respected faculty members, Dr. Lori Barker, come in to give us a presentation about the fields of Psychology and careers you can pursue in Psychology as well! This presentation is actually one of our most famous and anticipated presentations, since it helps our Psi Chi members figure out their emphasis and what they eventually want to do! We hope this presentation was informative, and we want to thank everyone who was able to attend! We encourage to continue to come to our meetings to hear from respected guest speakers, and to also engage in fun activities with your fellow Psi Chi members!
If you ever have any questions, please don't be afraid to reach out to us whether it's online or in person! We are here to help you!
Hope ya'll continue to hang in there, and good luck with your studies.
Happy Week 8 everyone!
For this week's meeting we had a very special guest speaker that came in, which was Dr. Eleonora Rossi! This is actually her last year at Cal Poly Pomona, so it was an honor for her to come in and give a presentation to the students.
Her presentation was about psycholinguistics, specifically about bilingualism and second language acquisition! She had a little introduction about herself, and then she proceeded to discuss her area of research. Dr. Rossi actually prepared a powerpoint, so if you would love to see what she presented about, please let us know!
Again, we would like to give a big thank you to Dr. Rossi for coming out and giving Psi Chi the opportunity to learn more about Psycholinguistics!
Hello again everyone! We hope that ya'll are having a great start of the week so far.
For this week's meeting, we had another guest speaker! Dr. Morales' colleague, Dr. Alison Cerezo, a Counseling Psychologist from the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology at UC Santa Barbara, came into talk a little about herself, and what she's currently doing in the field of psychology!
Her area of research is about eliminating social and health disparities. A little bit about herself is that she is from Pico Rivera, and has two brothers! She completed a research master's program at UCLA, and she studied ethnic identity. She realized that she had a passion to write and serve her community. She eventually got admitted to the University of Oregon, and went into counseling psychology. She was there for 5 years, and went on to complete an internship at UC San Diego!
Some recommendations she had to our Psi Chi members that do not know what they want to do with a Psychology bachelor's, was to not stress too much, focus on productivity, and continue to do good work. She also recommended that if you want to get your Masters, that it's better to look into Cal States, and if you want to get your Doctorates, it's better to look into UC's.
Dr. Alison Cerezo, definitely gave an interesting and engaging talk to our Psi Chi members! We appreciate and are thankful for her efforts to come to our meeting to personally give us some insight. Thank you so much Dr. Alison Cerezo!
Thank you again to our members who came out this week. We hope to see ya'll next week!
Hello everyone! We hope that studying is going well for all of you. Remember to take frequent breaks and take it easy on yourself!
For this week's meeting, we did a fun activity because we know that all of you are pretty stressed out. The fun activity was KAHOOT! It was nice to just sit down and relax with all the members. To make it a little bit more fun, we added in some questions that aren't related to psychology, but about some of our E-Board members! We all had a good time, and we hope that we can do this again sometime in the future!
Have a great rest of the week! Below are just some pictures from the meeting.
