Founded in 1987, PsyClub is run entirely by Northeastern undergraduate psychology majors. They have an annual budget supplied by the department and use these funds to stage events, run programs and invite speakers to address the undergraduate student body. Check the Psychology Club bulletin board outside 125 Nightingale for latest news and information. Click here for the PsyClub Constitution. Meetings are typically held on Wednesday evenings.
All psychology and related majors should receive regular emails about meetings and activities. For more information or if you are not receiving emails about the Psychology Club, contact Emma Parrish, PsyClub President, or Prof. Dan Quinn, PsyClub Advisor.
