Mission and past activities
The threefold mission of PSYC Club is to meet the social, educational, and spiritual needs of students interested in psychology. Our guiding Scripture verse is "...love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" (Matthew 22:37 NIV).
Several events took place during previous academic years that are consistent with our mission:
- Made prayer pillows and blankets for people going through difficult times
- Attended a presentation, PTSD in Children & Adolescents: Diagnosis & Treatment by Dr. June Phelps, at Kent State University--Stark Campus
- Hosted a presentation on art therapy by Gail Wetherell-Sack of Human Development and Counseling Associates
- Made care packages for international students
- Offered students free fruit smoothies at Froggy's as a study break before Thursdays Celebrations
- Provided support and encouragement at gatherings during mid-term and final exam weeks
- Sang carols to residents of Canton Christian Home
- Studied (as a club) individuals' "cookie designs" in a Christmas cookie decorating activity
