POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — Seven College of the Ozarks psychology students were inducted into the Psychology National Honor Society, Psi Chi, on March 27, 2018.
Psi Chi encourages students to maintain excellence and to advance the science of psychology. Students receive recognition for academic excellence in psychology.
“Psi Chi is an international honor society with the purpose to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology through research and service,” said Dr. Jeffrey Elliott, professor of psychology and Psi Chi sponsor. “Only the top 30 percent of psychology students qualify for this high academic honor.”
“This recognition is a noteworthy accomplishment because not all psychology students are inducted into this society. It is an accomplishment for those individuals who work hard to better understand and learn from the field of psychology,” said Sadie Selby, senior psychology major. “I am honored to be in this society.”
To qualify for the honor society, students must have a 3.25 GPA or higher and have completed 18 hours of psychology credit.
