From April 27 through April 30th, members of the Psi Beta Honor Society attended the Western Psychology Association’s annual conference in Riverside, California. Students attended poster sessions, symposiums, and distinguished speaker sessions. One member summarized some of the other benefits of the conference with the following reflection: “The WPA conference provided an opportunity for networking within the professional psychological community and learning about potential higher education pathways. It created a space for bonding between club members and connecting with future peers and mentors. It was a fantastic way to introduce undergraduates to the world of research and potentially give an opportunity for presenting research.”

This was the first professional conference for all of the Skyline College Psi Beta members who attended and they extend their profound thanks to those who contributed financial support to make the trip possible.
