What is Psi Chi?
Psi Chi is the national honor society for psychology. It is an organization comprised of graduate and undergraduate students across the country for the purpose of stimulating academic excellence in and the promotion of the science of psychology. Messiah’s chapter of Psi Chi is advised by Dr. Charles Jantzi and is governed by a body of student officers.
Why should I join?
There are many benefits to becoming a member of Psi Chi, including a broad network base of psychology students and professionals, opportunities for scholarships and grants, national recognition for academic excellence in psychology, and a sense of community among chapter members. Membership is for life, so even after graduation, Psi Chi members can enjoy the benefits of belonging to a community of psychology scholars. Members of Psi Chi at Messiah College receive a pin and certificate upon induction. Senior Psi Chi members will also receive honors cords to wear during graduation.
How can I become a member?
Dr. Jantzi will send an invitation to all students majoring or minoring in psychology if they are eligible to become a member.
