Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purpose of encouraging and maintaining scholarship in, and advancing the science of, psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests and who meet the minimum qualifications. Beloit's chapter of Psi Chi was chartered in 1982. Members receive a newsletter, are eligible to apply for research funds and other awards, may submit papers to special Psi Chi sessions at regional and national conferences, and may list Psi Chi as an academic honor on their résumé.
Who is eligible to join Psi Chi? All declared psychology majors who are in the top 35% of their graduating class and have a 3.3 average (or better) in at least four psychology courses. We review the academic folders of all psychology majors each fall; eligible students are invited by letter to join. See Alexis Grosofsky, chapter advisor, for more information about Psi Chi.
