This spring, 14 Qunisigamond Community College students were inducted into the Psi Beta Honor Society. Psi Beta is a national honor society designed for students who are attending community college who are majoring, minoring or just have an interest in psychology. Eligibility requirements include completing at least one psychology course, having a minimum of a “B” average in all psychology courses taken, with a minimum overall grade point average of 3.25. Students must also have completed at least 12 credits. 

Due to the coronavirus-COVID-19, the newest inductees were mailed their certificates and medallions due to the cancellation of the physical induction ceremony.

"Although we were not able to hold our Psi Beta induction ceremony this spring as planned, we are incredibly proud of our latest inductees. We look forward to celebrating with our newest members in the not too distant future, and welcoming them into our vibrant and active psychology community," said QCC Professor and Psi Beta Advisor, Dr. Valarie Clemente.

QCC’s Psi Beta chapter provides students with numerous opportunities to engage in psychology, such as conducting original research, presenting research at professional conferences, hosting a guest lecture series, community service, leadership opportunities, and fundraising for mental health and other community initiatives.
