Psychology students at OBU participate in a wide variety of scholarly and extracurricular activities.
Scholars Day is a program that features student research from all over campus. All Psychology students complete our Research Methods I and II courses, and as part of this course sequence, students have an opportunity to present their research in the form of a poster presentation or symposium talk. The event is widely attended and students are able to discuss their research with students and professors from a variety of disciplines. This event also prepares students for presentations at regional and national conferences.
Psi Chi is the national honor society for Psychology. Our local Psi Chi organization brings interesting speakers and programs to the Sutton School of Social Sciences, runs an “OBU Mingle” fundraiser around Valentine’s Day, and hosts “Puppy Day” during spring finals to help students relieve stress.
Tiger Serve Day
Tiger Serve Day is a campus-wide event in which students and faculty complete service projects for people in the Arkadelphia community. Our teams complete 100+ projects every semester. Psychology students can participate on the Psychology team or with other organizations on campus.
