Monmouth College’s chapter of Psi Chi, the international psychology honor society, inducted seven new members earlier this month.
Membership is offered to psychology majors and minors who meet certain academic standards. Benefits include being able to compete for national and regional research grants and awards, as well as being able to submit research for publication in Psi Chi’s Journal of Undergraduate Research.
Inductees included senior Kourtni Reed of La Harpe, juniors Nicole Hurst of Pekin, Danelle Rhoades of Keithsburg and Sioban Stahl of Chicago and sophomores Brycie Courter of Brimfield, Sara Frakes of Carthage and Dee Rasheed of Freeport.
For the remainder of the spring semester, the chapter is planning a food drive to benefit Monmouth’s Jamieson Community Center, as well as movie nights with a psychology theme.
Psi Chi was founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and for advancing the science of psychology. MC’s chapter, which now has 30 active members, was established in 1972.
