4.
Involvement with a chapter promotes five major advantages. 
 
Leadership Experiences—You can gain leadership experiences that last a lifetime. For example, consider running for a chapter officer position.

 
Valued Friendships—A strong sense of community with others in psychology is created through various chapter meetings and activities with fellow students and faculty.

 
Personalized Education—Membership makes it easier for you to learn outside of the classroom through closer relationships with professors who encourage an interest in psychology, involve students in research projects, and write meaningful letters of recommendation.

 
Mentoring Involvement—You can, for example, help first-year students become accustomed to college life. You may also go on to become a faculty advisor and even form future chapters in order to teach younger generations.

 Community Service—You can gain recognition and take great pride in having helped others in your community through a variety of creative service projects.
