It's been a great semester in Psi Chi/Psy Club so far! Our General Body Meeting in January featured a Jeopardy-style Psychology Trivia game that ended with yummy edible prizes! In February we hosted Movie Night, where we watched Memento and learned more about the psychology behind the movie thanks to our faculty speaker Dr. Pathman. Our next event is GRE night which will be held on March 24th at 5pm in NMOR 130. This event will be held in conjunction with the Psi Chi chapter of NC A&T. Make sure to stop by to learn helpful study tips for the GRE and get any questions you may have answered about what to expect on this exam. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how to prepare for the GRE while meeting new Psi Chi members from the NC A&T chapter. PLUS there will be free food! Hope to see everyone there!
