St. Bonaventure’s Psych Club allows students to explore their interests within the realm of psychology. The club is open to all majors, which makes it a great opportunity for freshmen to interact with older students and gain knowledge about programs on campus.
The Psych Club offers seminars to assist students in applying to graduate programs and learning about what career opportunities a psychology degree can lead to.
We have also hosted guest speakers and off-campus trips. Two of the biggest events that the Psych Club is involved with are Brain Awareness Week and Out of the Darkness:
Brain Awareness Week is a global campaign founded and coordinated by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives and European Dana Alliance for the Brain. During BAW, campaign partners organize creative and innovative activities in their communities to educate and excite people of all ages about the brain and brain research.
Out of the Darkness is a fundraising event for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It consists of a 3-5 mile walk around campus that students and the community participate in together. Proceeds are used to support research, educational films, conferences, national centers that will evaluate the effectiveness of suicide prevention treatments, new survivor support groups and local suicide prevention programs.
Members of the Psych Club meet twice a month to plan for upcoming events and to discuss topics related to psychology. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to engage the campus.
