On February 6th, the Psychology club hosted a graduate school that featured professors Aris Karagiorgakis, Emilia Boeschen and Eric Clapham. They gave insight on what to expect, requirements and tips on how to get into graduate school. They discussed applying to schools by using the 5-5-5 system and what it takes to apply to a grad school. The GRE test, transcripts, letters of recommendation and personal statements were all explained thoroughly. They also included how to decide which schools to apply for and to be aware of deadlines and fees for applying. One of the strongest tips they gave was to get involved early in undergraduate school and stay involved. They also stressed the importance of doing research and representing yourself to get your name well known. All in all, it was a very influential and helpful meeting.
The Psychology club recently held a clothing drive to benefit the Artemis House and the Artemis Boutique. Bins were placed in Jonas Skywalk, and stayed there for three weeks. Dr. James Awbrey, a professor of sociology and human services at BH, offered an incentive for students to bring clothes to donate. Overall, it was a huge success! Secretary of the Psychology club, Alyssa Niesen organized the drive, and collected the items to bring to the Artemis Boutique. The donations amounted to an entire truck load, and came to over $2,000.00! President, Matthew McGee was very pleased with the turnout, and hopes the Club will organize more clothing drives in the future. An Artemis Boutique employee thanked the Psychology Club and the BHSU student body for the very generous donation, and commended the generosity of such “broke college kids.”
