Catawba students majoring in Psychology will likely join the Psychology Club, open to all Psychology majors and minors, which increases a sense of camaraderie among members by community service activities and fundraising. Some of the funds raised yearly by the Psychology Club, such as the annual Care Package sale, go to support the trip to the Southeastern Psychological Association's annual meeting in the spring, e.g., in New Orleans, Atlanta, Mobile, Savannah.
Students attending this conference have opportunities to meet students and faculty from across the southeast and hear reports on new research trends. Catawba's students routinely present the results of their own research at this conference, thus giving them a competitive edge in the job market or in admission to graduate school.
Psychology majors and minors who meet the criteria below may be eligible to join Psi Chi, the international honor society in psychology. Catawba's Psi Chi chapter hosts presentations on campus and serves the community by participating in service projects.
