Founded in the 1920s at Yale University, Psi Chi is the national honor society in psychology. It requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 for both psychology courses and overall GPA. GCU's chapter was founded in 1995.
The purpose is to applaud the academic scholarship of its applicants, as well as to celebrate all things psychological. As such, honor society members participate in charity events, field trips (e.g., Arizona Science Center, Adobe Mountain School), GCU's Harvest Festival, psychologically-themed movies, and scholarly presentations, as well as receive information about graduate schools and psychology-related careers. In the past, we have also had BBQs and parties around Christmas and graduation. Members may also assist in research projects, and we hope to attend a conference in the Spring.
