The Association for Graduate Students in Psychology

We are an active and sociable society open to all graduate students in psychology. We try to create a sense of community among our peers.

What do we do?

Fun stuff

Every year the Graduate Students association distributes funds to each departmental graduate society. Our job is to try to use those funds to enhance your graduate experience.

Monies have been used to:

  • Fund an awesome orientation/welcome party each fall in our grad lounge.
  • Fund an exciting end of the year party at a local pub.
  • Create raffles/draws for prizes for different holiday seasons so you can enjoy more fun stuff for free (movie tickets, coffee vouchers, bookstore gift cards, etc.).

We are always open to new suggestions on how you want your money to be used (for example, last year an email survey was sent around and students gave us input on how they wanted the funds to be used).

Don't wait for the survey though - feel free to email us your new ideas as soon as they pop into your head!

Important stuff

We are in charge of placing student representatives on the various departmental committees. We do this in a fair an unbiased way, trying to make sure as many students who want a turn get one, and using a random draw when necessary.

Student representatives lend our perspective and concerns to the faculty, and keep the rest of us informed of important issues and changes as they arise.

If you're interested in getting involved and gaining valuable experience for your CV, look out for the email that goes out about departmental committees each fall.
