Website submissions

Hello all!

We are always looking for website submissions! Want to give a summarize of an interesting paper you’ve read? Have a paper for a former class you are particularly proud of?  Took a great picture at one of our events? Want to make a video explaining why you like Psi Chi and Psychology Club? Any of these can be submitted for points (if the submission is accepted). Please follow these sign up instructions to get the ball rolling.

Caveats:

  • We do not accept submissions of papers that were submitted for a class you are currently enrolled in, unless the professor gives written permission to do so.
  • Pictures of other students must have written permission from those in the picture.
  • If writing a summary of a paper you’ve read, please include a link to the abstract. If you’re not sure how to do so, or want to know how to prevent plagiary, these are some good guidelines.  While this may seem like a lot of work, it helps to develop good writing skills, which will help you with classes.

Hospice volunteering

At the second meeting of the semester, representatives from Encompass Home Health attended and talked about volunteer opportunities as a hospice worker. This is considered community service, so if you participate, you can get points to lower your dues. This can also be a great opportunity to add to your CV if you are planning on going to graduate school for counseling or social work. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • providing companionship and socialization
  • helping with general office support
  • running errands with patients and families
  • playing games, reading and listening to music with patients
  • walking and caring for family pets
  • assisting with light house cleaning
  • creating photo albums of patients and their families
  • writing a journal or life story with patients, to give to their families
