Why should people join? What makes your group special? What will students gain by being a member?
SPA is an excellent RSO for psychology majors/minors, as well as anybody interested in the field of psychology. Psychology majors and those interested in psychology are given the opportunity to network with other students as well as faculty to gain a larger group of friends and contacts that ultimately help them to succeed.
Does your group have a fundraising, volunteer, or service initiative? Do you consistently work with a non profit organization?
SPA fundraises throughout the year in order to raise money for our trip to Chicago, which occurs in May every year. This trip is a great experience for everyone in the group, as we attend the Midwest Psychological Association's conference in downtown Chicago. Everyone in the group has the opportunity to be exposed to research done by other undergraduate students as well as graduate students while experiencing the city of Chicago.
SPA also participates in community service activities throughout the year in Big Rapids, such as the Big Event.
