Psi Beta, a National Psychology Honor Society, is proud to host Giving Away Psychology (GAP), a speaker series designed to share information related to the field of psychology.
Our first speaker in the series was Noreen Singh, a Skyline College alumnus who graduated in 2020 with degrees in both Psychology and Sociology. She is now in her second year of her Master’s program at CSU, Stanislaus, earning a degree in Counseling Psychology.
Noreen’s talk focused on her journey from community college to graduate school and her experience in research. Below are some of the topics she covered:
- The importance of taking initiative by actively looking for opportunities while at the same time being open to accepting help when needed or offered
- Ideas about how to determine which psychology program may be right for you
- The importance of listening to yourself when thinking about how to proceed in your educational journey when others are encouraging a different direction
- How to go about choosing a research topic and venues to present findings
Psi Beta meets every Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Building 6, Room 6-206. Our activities include psychology-based discussions, Wellness Wednesdays, volunteer and community engagement events, and GAP presentations (the next is on 10/26).
