Psychology and Sociology Club

Dr. Douglas Miller


The Psychology and Sociology Program has two ways for students to become actively involved in community service and scholarly pursuits. The Psychology and Sociology Club is open to all departmental majors, regardless of grade point average. In the past, Club members have engaged in several activities, including food drives for the needy during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and a trip to the State mental hospital in Columbia.

Psi Chi is the national honor society for psychology, and the South Carolina State University chapter of Psi Chi was established in 1979. In order to be eligible for membership in Psi Chi, students must have an overall grade point average of at least 3.0 and a psychology grade point average of 3.0. In the past, Psi Chi members have focused on graduate school preparation by taking trips to the USC library to learn how to use Psychological Abstracts, engaged in a small group research project, instituted the Black History Month bulletin board, and traveled to the Southeastern Psychological Association convention in Savannah, Georgia.

Dr. Edwin Ayers is faculty advisor for the Psychology and Sociology Club and Dr. Douglas Miller is advisor for Psi Chi. You may obtain further information about these organizations from these individuals.

Students sponsor events for the Clinic's children. This is an organization for undergraduate students; graduate students are also active participants in the activities.
