Graduate Association of Students of Psychology (GASP)
Graduate school can be stressful at times, and GASP offers a social network that can help you adjust to the life of a graduate student. GASP activities give you the opportunity to have fun, relax and form friendships with fellow graduate students and faculty. Informational meetings keep you up-to-date on academic and social events. Interaction with faculty will also help you transition from the college atmosphere to the professional world. For more information, contact Gina Smith or Jennifer Bonds-Raacke, faculty sponsors.
Beyond activities found in the Department of Psychology, majors become part of many campus-wide organizations, such as Greek life, Student Government or more than 100+ official clubs and organizations.
