Good luck on all your midterms everyone!
For this week we actually had no formal meeting. Instead, we had our very first pizza fundraiser of the semester!
We had a very successful turn out and we wanted to thank everybody and everyone for supporting Psi Chi. It really means a lot to us!
Other than that, please remember to pay your club membership fees, your International fees, and be on the lookout for WPA registration that is coming up really soon!
Take care of yourselves, thank you everyone! Have a great rest of the week and remember to take mini breaks during your studying.
See you next week!
Hello everyone! It's Week 5! Midterms are coming up... we hope that ya'll having been taking good care of yourselves physically and mentally! As a matter of fact, on the topic of mental health, we have prepared a presentation for ya'll about stress management!
We know that midterms and finals are one of the most stressful weeks for all students. Students are pulling all-nighters to study, forgetting to eat, and stress levels are very high. In our presentation, our very own E-board members suggested some of their ways to cope with stress! Some of the activities included listening to music, walking their dogs, meditating, taking quick naps, or talking to a close friend about their feelings. Everyone has their own way of coping with stress, but we hope that ya'll know that there are many services that the campus provides for everyone if the stress you're having is unbearable. CAPS is one of the great services on campus that you can talk to if need be. Please, reach out to others and the services on campus, we're here for you!
After the presentation, we actually included a little activity as well. We made D.I.Y. stress balls out of rice! This was a nice and fun activity for everyone to make their own stress ball and have around whenever they need it. We hope that ya'll were able to enjoy this activity and our presentation!
Hello everyone it's Week 4! Hope ya'll are doing well and are getting used to your schedules!
For this week's meeting we did a fun activity! We had case studies prepared so that ya'll can diagnose patients with mental illnesses or complications. We had 15 slides prepared for ya'll and everyone was split into teams. Each case study that the teams got right was given a point! It was definitely a fun and interesting activity, and we hope that ya'll enjoyed it. For those who are interested in Abnormal Psychology and Clinical Psychology, we hope that this activity was definitely practice for you.
See ya'll at next week's general meeting! Good luck with all your studies everyone.
It's week 3 everyone! Does anyone feel like the weeks are going by super fast this semester?
Anyways! For this week's general meeting we had a special guest speaker come in. Dr. David Craig is a career counselor from the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences here at Cal Poly Pomona. He was kind enough to take some time off and give a presentation about "What you can do with a Bachelor's Degree" We know that some of you may not know what to do after your graduate and have your degree, so this presentation was supposed to give you some insight into the possible fields of jobs that you can consider down the road! He was able to give a very in-depth presentation about each position/job and it was a great way for the students to also ask any questions they had. We love to see ya'll show up and attend these meetings because it tells us that these meetings are useful and engaging for ya'll!
Dr. Craig will send me the presentation soon, so I will attach that link below.
We hope that ya'll found these meeting useful, and we want to give a big thank you to Dr. Craig for giving such an insightful and eye-opening presentation for our fellow Psi Chi members. Thank you everyone for coming! We hope to see ya'll next week!
Hello everyone it's Week 2! We hope that your classes have been good to ya'll so far.
For this week's meeting we had our Community Service Chair, Michael, give a presentation about volunteer opportunities within Psychology! This presentation is a great way for our members and psychology students in general to really learn about the many opportunities that are out there and are available to you. There are many different types of volunteer opportunities that may cater to your interests. This is a great way for ya'll to gain valuable experience and to gain skills that may be utilized in graduate school or in the future. These are opportunities that you can definitely put into your resume or your cover letter! We had some students who share their own experiences with the Prison Education Project (PEP) and from Tri-City Mental Health Center. There are members around you who may have had a volunteer opportunity, so please network with each other and don't be afraid to ask any questions if you are interested!
I will have the link of the presentation here in case any of ya'll want to look back at it.
Thank you so much ya'll for coming to this week's meeting! We appreciate it.
