Psychology Club 2014-2015!
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!
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. This year, for example, club members are volunteering by making dinner for the Youth Mentorship Program here at Oregon Tech. We also have opportunities to volunteer at local symposiums here in Klamath Falls! In addition to meetings, activities around campus, and volunteering in the community, each year we strive to attend the Western Psychological Association Convention.
Western Psychological Association Convention
We are in the process of fundraising to attend The Western Psychological Association (WPA) Convention located in Las Vegas, Nevada. 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, and make connections for jobs and graduate school. This year, there are over 30 distinguished speakers and free statistics workshops offered each day (think: resume booster!). Ten Oregon Tech Psychology Club members are attending the conference this year, and we hope for more to attend every year. WPA Convention 2016 is located in Long Beach, California!
Winter 2015 Meetings
This term, we are meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. We have two times for your convenience– drop on by either time to meet fellow Psychology Club members and stay up to date with the club’s activities! We meet at 12 noon in Semon Hall’s conference room (127) and at 4 pm at Matteo’s Coffee Shop (2229 North Eldorado Avenue). 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.
