  • High School Senior Application Workshop  We will be helping high school seniors build their personal statements for their college applications.  

    Some of us are staying in contact with the student we worked with and providing feedback on essays and offering support through the college application process.

  • Volunteer Opportunity: High school Senior Writing Workshop  We will be helping with the next college application writing workshop for Tacoma High School Seniors. We will talk to students about their personal statements and other college essays. A lot of students will be interested in your experience with college and about the college application process in general. You do not need to be an expert at personal statements to help the students. Last time, many high school seniors believed they did not have a story to tell and we listened to their experiences and helped them realize that everyone has a story to tell. There will also be a brief training at the start of each shift to provide you with information about what makes a strong personal statement. Everyone who helped at the last one thought it was an incredible experience. David Adler and Nicky Reed were even quoted in the newspaper!
  • Psi Chi Holiday Gathering - come relax and de-stress before finals with Psi Chi! We will have hot cocoa, holiday treats, and fun activities.
  • Topic Toss Up - discuss current events relating to psychology and neuroscience with students and faculty - snacks are always provided!
    (Points will be given for attending all of these events)
