Thomas University students inducted into Psi Chi honor society
Five Thomas University students were inducted into the Psi Chi national honor society for psychology during a ceremony held Wednesday, April 30, in Balfour Chapel on TU’s Main Campus. In order to join Psi Chi, students must have an overall GPA of at least 3.0, rank in the upper 35th percent of their class, demonstrate superior scholarship in psychology, and demonstrate high standards of personal behavior.
This year’s inductees include Burton Burt of Gainesville, Fla.; Chelsea Dolan of Thomasville; Emma Hewett of Newcastle, England; Rachel Ivancic of Royal Palm Beach, Fla.; and Waunell Reichert of Thomasville.
“We are proud to have this group of students inducted into the world’s largest student psychological organization,” said Dr. DeDe Avery, Chair of the Division of Counseling and Psychology. “They’ve demonstrated their commitment to furthering their academic interests in psychology, and I look forward to what the future holds for them in their chosen field.”
Founded in 1929, Psi Chi’s primary purposes are to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship and to advance the science of psychology. The TU chapter is one of more than 1,100 chapters around the globe.
