Psychology Club

Psychology Club

Psychology club is open to students of any major! Are you a psychology major and want to become more involved in the Club, make connections at Oregon Tech, and access important resources for future career opportunities or graduate school? Have you declared a psychology minor and want to connect with more students? Did you simply take one psychology class and love it, but can’t fit any more into your busy schedule? Come to a Psychology Club meeting and see what we are all about!

Club Activities

Every year we engage in volunteering in the community as well as fundraising to attend fun and educational events that are relevant to the field of psychology. In 2016, we had the opportunity to go to the Western Psychology Association (WPA) conference and meet Phi Zimbardo, who led the famous Stanford Prison Experiment in 1971.

The club also participates in club socials where members get to take a break from studying! In addition to meetings, activities, and volunteering in the community, each year the club strives to attend the Western Psychological Association Convention.

Western Psychological Association Convention

The Western Psychological Association (WPA) Convention is held in different locations each year. WPA is a great place to learn more about the diverse field of psychology, meet other students and professors with similar interests, hear keynote speakers, attend interesting presentations, make connections for jobs and graduate school, and possibly present your own research! It is a great opportunity for resume building. Approximately ten Oregon Tech Psychology Club members attend the WPA, but sometimes more members are allowed to go.

Fall 2017 Meetings

This term, we are meeting every Monday from 2-3pm in Mt. McLoughlin located in the College Union. Drop on by to meet fellow Psychology Club members and stay up to date with the club’s activities! If you have questions about our meetings or cannot attend due to a scheduling conflict, you can contact one of our officers for the minutes from each meeting, or join the Oregon Tech Psychology Club Facebook page.

If you have any questions, you may contact any of the officers via e-mail.
