23The Psychology club usually meets about twice a month and holds meetings geared towards providing students with information about careers in psychology, information about research, and information about the major/coursework. More often then not, we are fortunate enough to have guest speakers from various fields come in and speak about their work and expertise/offer advice and insight to our students. In the past, we have had Hunter faculty, therapists, and psychological novelists come in to speak. Likewise, we also hold student-led meetings and encourage our members to lead a meeting on any topic of their interest. If you would like to lead a meeting (with our help of course), just send us an email! We do our best to offer opportunities for our students to gain insight, network, and enjoy what the psychological community has to offer.
