Happy week ten ya'll! Push through because it's almost spring break!
This week's meeting was for students who are interested in I/O psychology. We had graduate students from Cal State San Bernardino come in and give us a presentation and share their experiences with us!
Below are some slides about the presentation! It explains what I/O psychology is and what you can potentially do in the field. For those who are interested in obtaining their masters degree, Cal State San Bernardino offers a great 2 year program. So please do check it out if that's possibly something you're interested in.
Other than that, we want to thank our guest speakers for taking their time off to come give us a presentation!
Just a reminder that the Tuesday we come back from spring break we actually have a pizza fundraiser in front of the gallery lawn, so please come by and support Psi Chi!
Other than that, we hope that ya'll have a safe and lovely spring break!
We hope that ya'll are doing well! It's almost spring break so push through!
Today's meeting was actually an informational one and we had some very important announcements! Since WPA is coming very soon, we just want to remind all of our members who are interested in going, whether you're going to present or not, to register and pay the registration fee for WPA by March 31st! Once the date gets closer, we will be talking more about the conference and what you should expect and prepare for. Members should start getting a sense of who they want to potentially room with!

The next announcement was regarding E-Board Elections! It's already that time of the year to elect the new E-Board members for the next academic year. If you are interested in running, please add in your name under the position that you are interested in running for! We highly recommend ya'll to run. If you have any questions about any of the positions please feel free to contact us.
The last announcement we had was regarding the banquet. For this year's banquet... we actually have a theme! The theme is Optical Illusions, so it's going to a really cool and fun time. The banquet will be on May 10th so please save the date! Once the date starts coming closer, Beverly will start recruiting people to help set up the banquet.
Hope ya'll have a wonderful rest of the week! We hope to see ya'll next week!
Can ya'll actually believe that we're half way through the semester? It's so crazy to think about! We hope that ya'll have been doing well with your studies and that you're taking care of your mental and physical health. You may be feeling burnt out, so just remember to take care of yourselves and push through!
For this week's general meeting, we actually had a very special guest come. Sergio Maldonado is a Psi Chi alumni and last year's Psi Chi president! We are so appreciative and thankful that he came to Psi Chi to share his own graduate experience so far and what being a PhD student is like! He was able to offer a lot of insight and valuable recommendations and advice to all of our members. We hope that our old members were happy to see Sergio again, and our new members to know a little more about Sergio!
Once again, we would like to thank Sergio for taking his time off to come and visit Psi Chi! Good luck on your journey, and we hope to have you back!

It's Week 7 everyone! Hope ya'll are having a great start of the week so far. We hope that those who still had midterms are able to get a little breather now!
For this week's general meeting we decided to play a fun game. Our E-board prepared for ya'll a game of Jeopardy... but a Psychology version! We do our best to incorporate both academic and fun related meetings for ya'll. It was so great to see all of you so engaged and excited to play! Although it was a bit competitive, it's great for everyone to test out what they know, and what they possibly don't!
The team that got the most points was actually able to win a $5 Starbucks gift card! If you weren't able to win this time around, don't worry because we'll have more fun games to play down the road!
Hope ya'll have an amazing rest of the week. Take care everyone!
