My name is Jenny Tran and I am a junior psychology major. There are a few things that I’d like to share with you as I reflect on my experience serving as the President of the Psychology Club.
1. Communication is important. I have learned to communicate better with others as we organize, delegate, and work together as a team. I realize the importance to create a friendly environment with our fellow club members and collaborators. As a result, we streamline the process of planning and executing successful events, such as the Brain Bee event that took place in February 2019.

2. Partner with other clubs to host events. In the past, the Psychology Club has collaborated with other clubs and organizations. For example, we collaborated with Active Minds and organized a “De-Stress Week” before the finals last semester. This event included activities (e.g., paint night, coloring night, and social night) to provide opportunities for students to decompress. It was very well-received!
3. Make Psychology fun and accessible. The Psychology Club has been successful in inviting psychology professors and special speakers to discuss various topics related to Psychology. We are hoping that these opportunities will enhance students’ interests and knowledge and inspire them as they consider their future career.
Serving as the President of Psychology Club has allowed me to build better relationships with my peers and professors. I have become more attached to the psychology department, as well as the Stevenson University community. Overall, it is a wonderful experience!
