The Psychology Undergraduate Council is open to all students interested in psychology. The council organizes or contributes to a number of events each year, such as:

- GRE information sessions
- Introducing and describing the department’s honors program
- Research open houses
- Student/faculty luncheons
- Community service events
- Professional panels
The council maintains its bulletin board on the third floor of Meliora Hall (outside the copy room, Meliora 367), and is available to students for consultations on teachers, courses, majors, minors, etc.
Being active in the Undergraduate Psychology Council is an excellent way to meet other psychology students at all levels, to learn about psychology beyond courses, and to engage in interesting current issues in informal settings.
Current Psychology Undergraduate Council officers are:
- Jessica Harper, Co-President
- Nathan Nguyen, Co-President
- Hannah Ephraim, Public Relations Officer
- Jaimee Nathaniel, Secretary
- Eurjin Kim, Business Manager
The meetings are Wednesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. in Meliora Hall, room 366.
