Giant Psi Beta / Psi Chi Collaborative Event at San Diego Sea World

Psi Beta intern Issanna Loughman, former Psi Beta standout at San Diego City College and now a Psi Chi leader at UC San Diego organized the largest collaborative event in Psi Beta history. More than 200 Psi Beta members, Psi Chi members, and faculty advisers from 14 chapters attended a special Sea World event on March 9th! Visitors were treated to an inside view of the psychological methods use for training lead by Dr. Burtis the lead trainer at Sea World. Not only did students learn about orcas, dolphins, pilot whales, walruses, belugas, and sea lions, they had the opportunity to interact and strengthen bonds between honor societies. Furthermore, Dr. Burtis, a Psi Chi member, was honorarily inducted into Psi Beta and given a plaque to honor her commitment to psychology and for her generosity.

















We are continually impressed with the dedication Issanna Loughman brings to Psi Beta, and look forward to continuing her legacy by strengthening bonds between Psi Beta and Psi Chi. We want to thank all of the chapters that participated and would love to create more opportunities for Psi Chi and Psi Beta networking events in the future.
