Psi Chi Inductees Honored at Ceremony
Marywood University recently held the Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, ceremony, where 23 psychology students were inducted into the national organization.
Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, was founded in 1929 for the purpose of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests and who meet the qualifications for membership. Psi Chi is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association and a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Psi Chi also works closely with its sister honor society, Psi Beta, the national honor society in psychology for community and junior colleges.
