Letters of Recommendation

In order to prepare an appropriate letter of recommendation, faculty members need to have several pieces of information from you (eg. about the program/position for which you are applying, your grades, your strengths, previous experience, etc.)  For more information on obtaining a letter of recommendation from a professor, please click here.

Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology. Students become members by joining the chapter at the school where they are enrolled. Psi Chi chapters are operated by student officers and faculty advisors. Together they select and induct the members and carry out the goals of the Society. All chapters register their inductees at the national office, where the membership records are preserved for reference purposes. The total number of memberships preserved at the national office during the first 65 years is over 270,000. Many of these members have gone an to distinguished careers in psychology.  For more information, please click here.
