Twenty-seven Students Inducted into RSU’s Psi Chi Chapter

Rogers State University’s Psi Chi chapter inducted 27 new students into the international honor society through a virtual ceremony on April 24. Faculty advisors include Dr. Kevin Woller, Dr. Sonya Munsell and Dr. Christine Whiting-Madison.

“I am so very proud to work with such a dedicated group of emerging professionals who make up the membership of Psi Chi,” Woller said.

Psi Chi is an international organization that promotes excellence and service in the field of psychology. It brings students together in a forum to encourage, stimulate, maintain excellence in scholarship and advance the science of psychology.

Psi Chi’s RSU chapter encourages its members to submit research for peer review, make presentations at conventions, provides service opportunities for community involvement, and allows students to fellowship and collaborate as they move from academia to applied psychology.

“Our various community services efforts allow students to help others, learn about practical aspects in the field, and have opportunities to meet and work with professionals in all areas of psychology. This helps students with internships, job opportunities and placements after graduation,” Woller said.

Students interested in applying for Psi Chi membership must maintain a minimum of 3.24 GPA in psychology related courses and rank in the upper 35 percentile of the university. The RSU students inducted into Psi Chi are listed alphabetically:

Amber Bird, Bailey Bowman, Michele Brogdon, Mercedes Campbell, Heather Clark, Jaime Cotner, Emil DeVore, Ashlyn Dunn, Kambrie Dyer, Ronnie Epperly, Jill Garrison, Olivia Goss, Michayla Hamm, Mattie Johnston, Aimee Jones, Amanda Laning, Katyln McDonald, Jamie Mertins, Chloe Miller, Ifunanya Nwokolo, Autumn Rosenthal, Cameron Shaw, Lauren Elizabeth Smith, Alyssa Warner, Tori Washburn, Lynn Williams and Rebekah Wilson.

Psi Chi was the first student organization affiliated with the American Psychological Association. The RSU chapter was the first baccalaureate honor society established at the university. Psi Chi is available to students pursing degrees in community counseling and social science-psychology.
