Psychology Club

 
 
 

Our Club Bylaws

The Psychology Club consists of students interested in establishing relationships with faculty and learning more about psychology outside of the classroom. We organize a number of events such as PURC, Diversity Day, the Psychology Social, guest speeches, and community service-related events hosted by Marist College. These events present members with knowledge and experience with regards to the different concentrations of psychology. All majors are encouraged to join!
