Welcome to Psi Chi and SPA at Illinois State University!
The Student Psychological Association (SPA) is a club on campus that celebrates psychology! SPA is for any student that is interested in psychology, whether you may be a freshman or a senior here at ISU. SPA does not have academic requirements to join, but we do expect that you attend a certain number of events put on by the club. Psi Chi is an International Honor Society that provides additional psychology resources to members. With Psi Chi being an honor society, there are specific requirements, both academic and social, to join. Requirements to join for both groups are listed under the ‘Admission’ tab.
Throughout the year we have group meetings every other Thursday from 7-8 pm in Williams Hall 1F, with social time to follow. Meetings will be more formal and will provide resources for members, such as guest speakers from graduate programs, the Department of Psychology at ISU, or community programs around the Bloomington-Normal area. On Thursdays when there are no meetings, socials will be hosted at the same time and place. Socials are more casual events that allow members to get to know each other, ask questions, and give ideas for future programs. We also host multiple volunteer and fundraising opportunities, and those will be announced as they develop.
We make up a diverse group of students that you can be a part of too! Follow the tabs on the left to view the admission requirements, schedule for the current semester, and additional contact information. The ‘Meet the Board’ tab at the top gives you a little more personal description of each board member. We’re very excited for this semester and hope to see you at meetings!
