The Furman Psychology Club is an inclusive group of students and faculty
who are interested in psychology by visiting OrgSync
. Anyone is welcome to join. The Psychology
Club is primarily a student-run organization. Academic and social activities
are important aspects of this organization. Social activities are designed
to increase the feeling of community within the Psychology Pepartment.
For example, the fall picnic provides a chance for students and faculty
to interact outside of the classroom. Academic activities are intended
to increase knowledge about and interest in psychology. For example,
a group usually attends the South Carolina Academic Day in order to
learn more about careers and graduate study in psychology. Also, each
year several speakers are sponsored. Thus, the purpose of the Psychology
Club is to encourage participation in psychology-related activities
outside of the classroom.
