Psychology Club Homepage
Welcome to the University of Rio Grande's Psychology Club Homepage. The psychology club is a student organization whose goal is to learn about psychology and maintain an active and responsible role in our university and community. Had a busy year in 2013-2014 and is currently planning several exciting events for the upcoming year. To join the club students only need an interest in psychology (being a psych major is not required). The club meets regularly, so keep an eye on this website or follow them on Facebook
to receive updates and meeting times.
During the 2013-2014 school year the club was given a private tour of the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, OH. The tour was led by Dr. Chad Sed, who is in charge of inmate mental health and counseling services. Students had a blast learning about mental healthcare in the prison system, and were lucky to see an up-close and personal view behind the scenes.
The club also participated in a Secret Santa event that provided gifts for local children, organized a shelter drive that provided goods for the Mason County Homeless Shelter in Point Pleasant, WV, and hosted a guest speaker, Kristina Camden, MA-PCCs, who discussed her career and education as a psychological clinician.
In spring of 2014 the club enjoyed a field trip to the Center for the History of Psychology
in Akron Ohio. We were amazed to see important items from history like the shock generator from Dr. Milgram's obedience experiments, guard and prisoner uniforms from Dr. Zimbardo's prison study at Stanford, the 'Bobo doll' from Dr. Bandura's experiments, and much more. This was a surprisingly fun trip and we plan to go back in the near future.
