Psi Alpha


We are pleased to report that Psi Alpha presently has 17 active chapters and 242 members! Growing steadily since October, Psi Alpha has established chapters coast to coast, helping students showcase their interest in psychology.

With the school year coming up, Psi Alpha has launched three small scale scholarships as planned, for a student, a chapter, and an advisor.  We look forward to hearing back from participants regarding their experience as a Psi Alpha member/ advisor so far!

As we are still in our early stages, we are actively working to improve activities for students, emphasize the most impactful learning objectives, and develop collaborative activities to connect Psi Beta and Psi Chi. We hope that connecting high school students with college students who are pursuing their psychology degree we will boost retention in psychology programs and encourage students to engage in faculty-mentored research early in their academic career. More importantly, we hope that by growing Psi Alpha we will encourage students to expand on their interest of the mind, which as we in the psychology field know, is useful for all aspects of life!

Furthermore, we would like to formally thank our former Southwestern Vice President Danielle Jones for her contribution to Psi Alpha! She has been promoted to Dean of Students at her school and has moved on from her position with Psi Alpha. Thus, Psi Alpha is looking for a new Southwestern Vice President! We will be reaching out to existing advisors in the region. If you are interested, please send your resume/ CV to

We are very excited to grow Psi Alpha over the next year! If you have any recommendations, questions, or would like more information on starting a chapter, please let us know at
