Why Should I Join the Psychology Club?
The Psychology Club provides students an opportunity to expand their knowledge of psychology beyond the classroom by:
- Networking with other students, faculty, and professionals in a psychology/human services field
- Exploring training and careers in human services
- Getting involved in community mental health activities
- Joining professional organizations
- Having access to professional journals
- Attending professional conferences
Who Can Become a Member?
Any ICC student who has an interest in psychology/human services is encouraged to join the Psychology Club.
There is no membership fee - The club recognizes that it is often difficult for students to find time to attend meetings and show an active involvement. We still encourage students to join the club! We have a Psychology Club D2L page, as well as club activities, that allow students to keep active regardless of their class schedule.
