Graduate Psychology Society
The Graduate Psychology Society is run by the graduate students for the graduate students!
It is our commitment to create opportunities for the students to get to know each other and the faculty through social events, present the students with information as it pretains to their student life, and to speak to the department on their behalf regarding important issues.
