Should Your Chapter Activities Be in the News?

Posted By Bradley Cannon, Psi Chi Central Office, Tuesday, May 28, 2019
Updated: Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Last fall, I shared 10 or so news stories from various publications that feature Psi Chi chapters making a difference in their communities. Also, I briefly discussed some of the many media platforms where you should consider spreading the news about your chapter.

But what exactly is news, and how do you know which of your chapter’s activities you should share with others? Here is a quick tip: Choose events that meet some of these seven qualities, which journalists look for in order to determine whether a story is newsworthy.

  • Timeliness—Did the story/event occur recently, or will it occur soon?
  • Proximity—Is the story/event local and relevant to the people who will be receiving it?
  • Impact or Consequence—Will the story/event change people’s lives?
  • Novelty or Rarity—Is the story/event unusual or unexpected?
  • Conflict—Will the story/event stir up further discussion or debate?
  • Human Interest—Does the story/event provide a unique glimpse into someone’s life?
  • Prominence—Are the people in your story/event easily recognized or famous to your audience?

One story/event will probably only feature three or four of the qualities above. However, the more qualities that it does include, the more likely it will be picked up by the local media. For example, if your chapter will soon (Timeliness) be traveling to the local grocery story (Proximity) to raise funds for autism awareness (Impact) by selling cookies decorated like human brains (Novelty), then you’ve absolutely got a story worth sharing!

Even better, consider ways to fulfill the other newsworthiness qualities during your chapter’s upcoming events. For example, for the autism awareness event introduced in the previous paragraph, you could invite a popular local band member (Prominence) to join your event, play a few songs, and share about her experiences (Human Interest) with people who treated her differently due to her autism (Conflict). As you can see, through only a little extra effort, you now have a highly newsworthy story that many local media outlets will be ecstatic to feature!

And now, here are some of the latest Psi Chi chapters and members in the news. Please note that each of these stories takes place during the fall 2018 semester. I will share spring 2019 articles later this year, so be sure to continue promoting your chapter in the media and perhaps your article will be featured here in the blog as well.

Psi Chi URW Awards Ceremony

Posted By Psi Chi Central Office, Friday, April 12, 2019
Updated: Friday, April 12, 2019

A key part of Psi Chi’s mission is recognizing the successes and hard work put forth by our members. Therefore, it seems only fitting to finish up our fun, informal Psi Chi Undergraduate Research Week with an equally fun, informal Awards Ceremony article!

Below, we are proud to call out the following individuals for their incredible service to Psi Chi, student research, and the field of psychology!

Best 2018 Journal Reviewer

Editor Debi Brannan greatly appreciates every person on the Psi Chi Journal reviewer team. However, out of almost 300 doctoral-level reviewers, one reviewer in particular really stands out to her above all others. Reviewer Dr. Robert R. Wright (Brigham Young University–Idaho) has become one of the journal team’s top go-to reviewers for when we need a review that is fabulously in-depth, supportive to the authors, and speedy too! Rob, thank you so much for your service! Visit HERE to learn about becoming a reviewer!

Best 2018 Awards and Grants Reviewer

Awards and Grants Officer Paige Anctil would like to specially recognize evaluator Dr. Evan Zucker (Loyola University New Orleans) for his impressive service. In addition to being the Southwestern Vice-President from 2012 to 2016, he has also reviewed more than 100 applications between the Undergraduate Research Grants this and last year, and his work on the Scholarship committee, among other programs! Thank you, Dr. Zucker!

Best Psi Chi Tattoo!

Okay, so there’s only one person eligible for this recognition (that we know of!). But Bryan Patriquin’s (Southern New Hampshire University) tattoo is so wickedly awesome that we couldn’t help bringing it to everyone’s attention once again this year! You can view the tattoo, and the inspirational story behind it, in this recent magazine article.

Latest Psi Chi Distinguished Members

This year, Psi Chi’s Board of Directors have nominated two new renowned experts to become the latest Distinguished Members of Psi Chi: Dr. Jane S. Halonen (University of West Florida) and Dr. Antonio Puente (University of North Carolina Wilmington). Congratulations! Their names will now be listed alongside other Distinguished Members such as Drs. Albert Bandura, Elizabeth Loftus, and many others. View the full list.

2018 Most Active Journal Reviewer

Thank you so much to Dr. Katharine S. Shaffer (University of Baltimore) for completing EIGHT empirical manuscript reviews in 2018! Wow! Reviewers are selected based on their subject areas listed online. Therefore, reviewers who would like to increase their number of reviews requests are encouraged to log in to the online submission portal and see if there are any additional subject areas that they would feel comfortable reviewing.

Best 2018 Undergraduate Journal Manuscript for APA Style

Bradley Cannon, Psi Chi Journal’s APA Style Reviewer, is happy to recognize Kayla Wilson (University of Central Arkansas) for her outstanding work. All revised manuscripts receive a comprehensive APA Style Review, and Kayla’s manuscript had fewer edits than any other article this year! Great job! Also, special thanks to her coauthor and faculty mentor, Dr. Kenith Sobel. This is not the first time that Dr. Sobel has guided an outstanding student submission! See the full article.

Special Recognition

Kelly Cuccolo (University of North Dakota) told us that she stepped a bit out of her comfort zone when she applied to become the chair of the NICE:CROWD collaborative research project. Despite her original hesitation, her performance has consistently amazed us throughout, and the first-ever NICE:CROWD project is off to an incredible start. Kelly, that new program has benefited immensely from your hard work! Thank you!

Dr. Jon Grahe (Pacific Lutheran University) has been invaluable to the Research Advisory Committee. In his presidency of Psi Chi, he led the creation of the committee and then served as an ex officio member during his terms as president and past-president of Psi Chi. After serving in this role on the committee, he has served as a regular committee member until this summer. Jon’s work has done much to advance the ability of Psi Chi members to do their own research. Thank you!

And last but not least, we would also like to thank our Psi Chi Journal Editorial Assistant, Rebecca Stempel (Western Oregon University). The editorial team has come to really rely on and appreciate her assistance with scheduling meetings, reviewing the journal issue layouts, and everything else that she does for us. The Journal team dreads the day that she ever steps down from this position!

Reader, thank you for participating in Psi Chi Undergraduate Research Week this year. Although the event has now reached its conclusion, there are many year-long programs designed to support your growth as a researcher. Be sure to check them out HERE!

Have All Eligible Members Joined Your Chapter This Semester?

Posted By Bradley Cannon, Psi Chi Central Office, Thursday, March 28, 2019

A diverse range of people are eligible to join Psi Chi, a fact which is invaluable to the future of our Professional Organization. As Psi Chi’s 2004–08 Executive Director Dr. Virginia Andreoli Mathie recently worded it, “A more diverse membership makes Psi Chi more representative of our society at large and also creates more opportunities for our members.” That is why Psi Chi Central Office has been recently focused on expanding its efforts to seek out and attract individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Because people are eligible to join from so many walks to life, it is possible that your chapter has overlooked one of more groups of individuals who would appreciate and benefit from the opportunity to become a part of Psi Chi. At this time, take a close look at the list below of potential members who occasionally do not receive an invitation to join. Then, please reach out to anyone who might have been accidentally missed.

  • Invite eligible undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Invite eligible psychology majors and minors.
  • Invite eligible transfer students.
  • Invite eligible online students.
  • Invite eligible nontraditional students.
  • Invite eligible students in related fields (e.g., biopsychology or educational psychology).
  • Invite eligible interdisciplinary majors with at least as many psychology courses as a minor.
  • Invite eligible full-time faculty members.
  • Let individuals with diverse backgrounds and identities know that your chapter welcomes and values broad sociocultural representation.
  • Reach out to student clubs and organizations across campus that represent different groups of marginalized, underrepresented, and/or other diverse students./li>

If your chapter officers personally invite students to join in the classroom, then you can imagine how easy it would be for them to overlook inviting online-only students. Likewise, if all of your officers are full-time undergraduates, then you can imagine how their in-class invitations might be less likely to reach graduate students, who are enrolled in different courses entirely, or nontraditional students, who primarily only take night classes. Therefore, consider how the different groups of people above might have unique circumstances and methods of communication. Then, do you best to reach out people in the ways and places that work best for them!

Importantly, new requirements for transfer students have been in effect since March 5, 2019. These changes make it simpler for transfer students to join. For the changes to take place at your chapter, simply update your local Chapter Bylaws document. The latest modifiable template of this document is available on the Faculty Advisor and Officer Admin webpages (login required).

Also, it is a good practice to start promoting your chapter to people who are not currently eligible but most likely will be in the near future. In some cases, you can even attract people to pursue a psychology degree who had not yet considered it before (your Department will surely be impressed by this too!). For example:

  • Connect with underclass students during campus-wide orientations and other events in order to teach them about obtaining a degree in psychology and Psi Chi.
  • Connect with local high school students who are taking psychology courses in order to share about the benefits of pursuing a college degree in psychology and how your local chapter and Psi Chi can help support this journey.
  • Connect with psychology students at nearby community colleges to let them know what opportunities are available for them on your campus.

According to Psi Chi Distinguished Member Dr. Nadine Kaslow, “It is imperative that Psi Chi reflects the rich diversity of our communities. Doing so will lay the foundation for us to transform psychology to a discipline that that is truly inclusive and firmly committed to social justice in all scientific, educational, and applied endeavors.”

We at Psi Chi are passionate about expanding our perspectives through diverse membership in our Honor Society. In the past year or so, many specific strategies and activities to embrace diversity have been added to our new Diversity Matters online resource, which you are welcome to review at any time. You are also invited to use our invitation to membership template, which was specially edited by Psi Chi’s Diversity Committee.

We hope that you will join us at your local chapter in the pursuit of social justice and equal opportunity throughout our Professional Organization. Thank you for your support.

About Psi Chi URW

Posted By John E. Edlund, PhD, Psi Chi Research Director, Monday, March 18, 2019
Updated: Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Dear Psi Chi Member,

I hope you will join me during Psi Chi’s second annual celebration of Undergraduate Research Week (URW). All students and faculty—not just undergraduates—are invited to join us April 8–12 to shine a light on the latest generation of students striving to advance the science and application of psychology. The final program will be available online by April 4.

Specifically, this event will feature Psi Chi webinars, Facebook conversations with experts, new articles, and other Psi Chi research tools throughout the week. You are also encouraged to share about your current research projects and experiences on Facebook and social media. Use hashtag #PsiChiURW. Specific projects, interests, conference attendance—we want to hear about it all! You are also invited to send us any 15-second video clips of your research presentations to

As we wait for URW, here are four ways you can go ahead and honor this special occasion with Psi Chi today:

1. Join a Research Project

Psi Chi’s NICE:CROWD project allows student and faculty researchers from around the world to get together and investigate a specified research question. Each year, a particular research project will be selected by the NICE Committee, and then interested researchers will be guided through the process of gathering IRB approval and collecting data at their local institutions. Learn more about submitting a potential project for consideration or collaborating on the current project!

2. Receive Financial Support

Psi Chi provides $400,000 annually in awards, grants, and scholarships. This includes significant funding for undergraduate research awards, research grants, and travel grants to conventions. View a complete list of annual programs and deadlines.

3. Submit to Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research

Psi Chi’s quarterly, peer-reviewed journal is uniquely dedicated to educating and promoting the professional development of undergraduate, graduate, and faculty authors. Experience our rigorous, yet supportive and educational, peer-review process for yourself. Psi Chi’s high visibility across the field and dedication to transparent, replicable research practices makes our journal the place to submit your research today.

4. Learn Something New

Over the years, Psi Chi has built up a wealth of free articles and resources about Conducting Research and Attending and Presenting at Conventions. You are welcome to use these in your classrooms and other endeavors.

Undergraduate Research Week was originally declared by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010. Indeed, many professionals first discovered their passion for research when they were students. This celebration is to recognize those beginnings too, and for the mentors who cultivate countless bright minds.

Undergraduate research opportunities cultivate future generations of passionate and innovative researchers. I look forward to your participation in the upcoming Psi Chi URW celebration!

Advice and Other Insights From the Psi Chi Journal Editorial Team

Posted By Psi Chi Journal Editorial Team, Monday, February 25, 2019
Updated: Monday, February 25, 2019

Together, the Editorial Team for the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research agreed to share their top publishing advice and give you a glimpse of what it is like working with the journal.

The team includes the Editor: Dr. Debi Brannan (Western Oregon University); five Associate Editors: Drs. Mary Beth Ahlum (Nebraska Wesleyan University), Erin Ayala (St. Mary’s University of Minnesota), Jennifer Hughes (Agnes Scott College, GA), Tammy Lowery Zacchilli (Saint Leo University, FL), and Steven V. Rouse (Pepperdine University, CA); and the Managing Editor: Bradley Cannon (Psi Chi Central Office). You can view their full bios HERE.

The Editor and all five Associate Editors were selected to lead the journal, largely due to their prior service to the journal as both excellent reviewers and authors. Each person has demonstrated an impressive passion and skill for helping students and faculty authors to navigate the peer-review process and strengthen their research and writing skills. (And they’ve got a bit of a fun side too, as you can see in the pictures below!)

The journal would not be the one-of-a-kind teaching tool for Psi Chi that it is without each and every one of them. We are greatly appreciative of them for everything they do!

Caption: (top row from left) Tammy and Joy; Debi enjoying a floating restaurant on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon; Erin and a tasty treat; Steve at the top of Mount Whitney; (bottom row from left) Jenny and Winston; Bradley proudly framing his vehicle emissions test paper (Pass! Third time’s a charm!); and Mary Beth posing with the NWU Prairie Wolf.

What’s the #1 advice you would give to a student who is considering submitting a manuscript for publication?

ERIN: Pay attention to details! Ask a colleague to carefully read through your submission to make sure it adheres to APA style guidelines and is free from grammatical errors. By eliminating those minor errors, reviewers can focus on the content of your study. Second, listen to the reviewers and respond to all of their suggestions in an open manner. Reviewers spend a lot of time on their reviews and are subject matter experts, so it is important for authors to listen to their suggestions and to thank them for the time spent reviewing your work.

JENNIFER: The journal sees the publishing process as developmental. That means that we try to teach authors when giving feedback. I would tell students to prepare the best manuscript possible and then be open to feedback. That feedback can help students to become better researchers for future projects.

MARY BETH: Before submitting your manuscript go to and look up the many resources there about publishing. Read at least 2 of the articles and then adapt that advice to your manuscript.

STEVE: Be sure to have a faculty coauthor rigorously proofread the manuscripts. There are some faculty members who do not realize that the Psi Chi Journal is now a full peer-reviewed journal, indexed in PsycINFO—they may think it's just a repository for student term projects. As a result, they may not be as critical in reading these manuscripts as they would submissions to other journals. As a result, some manuscripts get submitted that are not quite at a stage that's ready for the peer-review process.

TAMMY: I recommend that students work closely with their advisor during this process and be open to getting another set of eyes to review the paper before submission. Be open to feedback and do not get discouraged if the outcome isn't what you expected.

BRADLEY: Go ahead and expect to receive a Revise and Resubmit decision the first time around. I think that receiving this decision sometimes disappoints student authors, who were hoping for an automatic Accept and who maybe didn’t know that a Revise and Resubmit decision is nothing to be ashamed of. However, Revise and Resubmit is the most common decision for original submissions to receive. And when you think about it, this totally makes sense because a key part of our peer-review process is to provide specific educational feedback to help you propel your research and writing skills to the next level.

DEBI: Just know that publishing a manuscript takes time and attention to details. Sometimes it feels like a lot to take on but that is when you rely on your faculty advisor and/or coauthors and trust the process. When you submit a manuscript for publication the worst-case scenario is that you will learn a lot—best case scenario is that you WILL learn a lot!

What’s your favorite part of being on the team?

ERIN: I truly love our team on the Editorial Board! I also enjoy working behind the scenes to make sure the research we publish is rigorous and methodologically sound. It's especially rewarding for me to work with the students and early career researchers. I want authors to have a positive experience submitting to journals, and to learn a lot along the way so that they feel prepared to submit to more journals in the future.

JENNIFER: It has been great fun to work with the Editor, the other Associate Editors, and the Psi Chi staff. We all bring different strengths to the team and learn from each other.

STEVE: Although the mission of the Psi Chi Journal has broadened from what it was previously (to now be a research outlet for Psi Chi members at all levels of professional development, rather than exclusively undergraduates), I appreciate that this journal's leadership still recognizes that one of its primary goals is supporting the educational development of undergraduates. Maybe I'm a walking cliche, living out Erik Erikson's stage of Generativity vs. Stagnation, but at this stage in my professional career I'm really seeing the importance of training the next generation of researchers—both at my own school and at others.

TAMMY: I love reading about the exciting research studies that our members are conducting. Psi Chi has always been dear to my heart so I love being involved with the journal. I love working with our editorial board!

BRADLEY: I am always happy to assist authors and reviewers with navigating the online system and the peer-review process. But for me personally, a highlight of working with Psi Chi Journal has been the numerous opportunities to help initiate new journal programs and technologies that will help disseminate our authors’ research. For example, obtaining DOIs (digital object identifiers) for our published articles and ORCID IDs for our published authors has been especially rewarding. DOIs and ORCIDs ensure that Psi Chi Journal articles will always be easy to access and attributed to the correct authors, even if the articles change location on the Internet or if an author’s name changes or is identical to another author’s name. I get to read a broad range of interesting articles too!

DEBI: The best part of being part of this team is having the opportunity to work with the best in the business! The associate editors, editor emeritus, and managing editor are a dream team of mentors, writers, researchers, and just good humans. It has been an enormous privilege to know this group and learn from them all—but most importantly, call them friends.

Of all the submissions that you have overseen, which one were you the most excited/proud to see ultimately published?

ERIN: I'm working with one right now that I'm really excited about! Unfortunately, it's in the final stage of the revision process, so I'm not able to provide too many spoilers. In sum, it examines the extent to which culturally diverse historical scholars are recognized by students in psychology. It's an important and eye opening piece of work.

MARY BETH: There have been some "weak" manuscripts where the authors worked diligently to follow the reviewers' advice and thereby improve the work substantially. Those authors deserve a lot of kudos. They demonstrate that hard work pays off!

STEVE: I was grateful for the opportunity to be the Invited Editor for the Special Issue on Open Science Practices (Vol. 23, Issue 2). As a result, I saw these manuscripts progress all the way from proposals to finished products. That was really rewarding.

TAMMY: It's difficult to pick a favorite. However, as a close relationship researcher, I am always excited to review manuscripts on this topic. For example, I was excited to see "The Effects of Perceived Attractiveness on Expected Opening Gambit Style" published as well as "What Makes You Swipe Right?: Gender Similarity in Interpersonal Attraction in a Simulated Online Dating Context."

BRADLEY: We have published more than a hundred outstanding articles since I first joined the journal team. However, one article stands out to me as an especially fascinating topic. That article, is “The Effects of Age and Sex on Saving Pets Over Humans.” In it, the authors investigated the number of college-age students who indicated that they would choose to save their pet instead of an actual human being! I have found myself bringing up this article during many conversations, both at Psi Chi and beyond with my family and friends around the dinner table. In particular, I love to ask people to guess the percentage who save their pet! Research like this really goes a long way to remind me just how diverse the field of psychology really is.

DEBI: I can honestly say that I do not have one manuscript that sticks out more in my memory than any other. Every time we publish a new issue of the Psi Chi Journal I feel so much pride. I am truly as invested as every author and faculty mentor. It is exciting to watch the progression of every single manuscript from the moment it gets submitted to the day that it goes to press!

Why would you recommend for faculty members to submit, in addition to students?

ERIN: Psi Chi members are lifetime members, and publishing in our journal is one of the membership benefits. As a journal that publishes broadly about topics in psychology, publishing with us is a great way to increase readership and your audience. Often, faculty members publish in journals that are specific to their discipline, which means the audience is limited to people who specialize in their respective area. By publishing in Psi Chi Journal, faculty members can introduce students to a breadth of topics. Many faculty members also use Psi Chi Journal articles in their classes for teaching, so it's a great way to contribute to the education of students, and to introduce students to your particular area of expertise! Finally, our reviewers are top notch, and are known for being constructive and generally quite friendly. :)

JENNIFER: It is a great journal that publishes quality research. Also, by submitting, they will be supporting Psi Chi.

MARY BETH: Articles authored by faculty members will be inspirational to students. Students will see an article by a professor in their department and be proud of one of their mentors.

STEVE: The Psi Chi Journal's mission is not a topical one but a community one. Whereas other journals exist to serve as a publication outlet for research on a narrow set of topics, the Psi Chi Journal exists to serve as a publication outlet for all psychological researchers (across the subfields of psychology) who are members of Psi Chi. As a result, this is one of the few truly peer-reviewed generalist journals in psychology. I would especially consider this a good place for a faculty member to send manuscripts that address issues that span multiple subfields.

TAMMY: This is an amazing journal that publishes some excellent and timely research studies. I think faculty should definitely consider publishing with the journal.

DEBI: The Psi Chi Journal is an inclusive journal that does not reach just one field of psychology but rather it accepts manuscripts from every area of psychology. Additionally, we accept qualitative and quantitative methods. This enables us to support professional development and disseminate all types of psychological science.

In what ways has your involvement with the journal helped to advance your research experience and/or career?

ERIN: When conducting my own research, I now actively search for flaws or holes in my project that reviewers might find, and address them early on. My writing has also improved as a result of my work as a reviewer, and now as an Associate Editor. Finally, my involvement in the journal increases the quality of my teaching and mentorship regarding research; I use Psi Chi articles regularly, and often bring in anecdotes for students and my research team when discussing the research and publication process.

MARY BETH: An academic position typically involves teaching, research/scholarship, and service. I enjoy contributing to the Psi Chi community by serving as an Associate Editor.

TAMMY: I think that this experience has improved my methods for teaching writing to my research methods I, II, and II students. I have always been actively involved in research with undergraduates but my experience with the journal has led me to encourage students to consider the journal for their projects.

DEBI: Because the Psi Chi Journal accepts papers from every field of psychology, I have read and edited many types of research in many domains. I have learned so much about the greater field of psychology just by the exposure to such diverse research. This has helped me think through my own teaching techniques, scholarship, and mentoring advice.

Submissions to Psi Chi Journal are welcome year round. Undergraduate, graduate, and faculty authors are all invited to submit.

The Real Chapter Challenge: How I Came to See the True Meaning of What It Means to “Give Back”

Posted By Cynthia Wilson, Psi Chi Director of Membership & Development, Friday, January 11, 2019
Updated: Friday, January 11, 2019

I started my interview with Bryan Barker of Norfolk State University and with Kevin Lee of Virginia Union University with two goals in mind: to see if they had a good experience with the Psi Chi Chapter Challenge and to see if our proposed changes to it would inspire others to join next year. What I got out of our interview was a steadfast belief in our mission. You see, Psi Chi seeks to both recognize and promote excellence in psychology. And through our members, we do just that. Bryan and Kevin are shining examples of excellence in psychology. They are a part of what makes Psi Chi very special.

Both young men cited the act of giving back to be a major incentive for taking part in the Psi Chi Chapter Challenge. Both Kevin and Bryan joined as sophomores at their respective chapters. And, both rose to the position of chapter president. Bryan thought that the notoriety of an international honor society was “intriguing” and that Psi Chi really “broadened his scope of psychology” as a whole. When Kevin heard of Psi Chi from his faculty advisor, he did his own research and discovered all that Psi Chi has to offer, which in turn encouraged him to join.

Caption: Above, Bryan Barker from Norfolk State University.

Bryan went on to say that Psi Chi has engaged him with leadership opportunities, allowed him to “strengthen his research skills and public speaking,” and helped him to make connections at both his own university and at other schools.

Kevin said, “Psi Chi has actually furthered my passion for the major.” He now has a resolve and a respect for what psychology is and means. “Psi Chi has opened my eyes to the concrete purpose of psychology itself,” he said.

So, being a development director, I had to ask, “Why the Challenge? What motivated you to participate?” Each of their answers surprised me. Although both Kevin and Bryan said that Psi Chi merchandise and the tangible nature of the 10% back to the chapter served as good incentives, the “give back” aspect was very important. Bryan said he encouraged his chapter to make “whatever contributions we can do” to help out. “By Giving Back we can get back as well.”

Kevin echoed Bryan’s sentiment that giving back was very important for his chapter as well. They made their chapters’ participation in the Chapter Challenge a “friendly competition,” and they wanted to see what they could accomplish as a team. “We ended up having a lot of fun together!” Kevin added. “By showing our passion and the purpose of Psi Chi to those who support us, it was really easy for us to be involved in the end.”

The inspiring part of our interview for me came when both Kevin and Bryan said to me that their individual chapters were small, Bryan’s only had three members when he took the helm as president. But, both young men really looked at their role as a Psi Chi member, and further as a chapter president, as an opportunity to increase the relevance of Psi Chi at their schools and to grow their chapters.

“Asking for help, or fundraising, is not always fun; but we could make it fun,” said Kevin. His leadership skills were put to use in the Chapter Challenge because, in the beginning, it was mostly the e-board who took part. But Kevin, as well as Bryan, used motivation to encourage others to take part. “Even those who didn’t take part in the Chapter Challenge were still there to support. And that meant a lot,” Kevin added.

Bryan’s regular motivations to his chapter were meant to “relight the fire” of what fundraising for Psi Chi meant. “What we were doing was larger than just us,” Bryan went on to explain, it was more than just an incentive or a T-shirt, it was big. Kevin motivated his chapter by saying, “you really understand the work that it takes to be part of Psi Chi, so you should be inspired to give back.”

Both Kevin and Bryan summarized their interview by stating that all Psi Chi chapters that participate in the Chapter Challenge should be formally recognized somehow. I was impressed by their inclusive thoughts and was again reminded of the mission of Psi Chi: to recognize and promote excellence in the science and application of psychology.

These two members of Psi Chi certainly do just that: they lead, they motivate, they think of others, and they strive for academic excellence. The challenge of doing each of those things is great. But, these two young men went a step further and decided to give back. Bryan and Kevin helped me see the true meaning of the Give Back to Psi Chi campaign. Our members are what make Psi Chi truly special. By giving back, we can all help to support the educations and careers of each member worldwide. By giving back, we’re really paying it forward.

The Chapter Challenge is new and improved in 2019! It will run January 14–March 31. We look forward to your participation!

Bryan Barker and Kevin Lee, from Norfolk State University and Virginia Union University respectively, led top fundraising teams for the inaugural Chapter Challenge in 2018. Cynthia, the creator of the Chapter Challenge, learned from them what it truly means to give back. They all three sat for a phone conversation in August 2018.

Place Your Bets! How to Host a Chapter Trivia Game Show (Sample Questions Included!)

Posted By Sophia J. Lamp and Mindy J. Erchull, PhD, University of Mary Washington (VA), Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Sophia J. Lamp and Mindy J. Erchull, PhD,
University of Mary Washington (VA)

The University of Mary Washington’s Psi Chi Chapter strives to create engaging and educational events every year for our department. Each year, our programming culminates with our two-day research symposium where students present their research from classes and independent studies through paper and poster presentations. The event closes with a keynote address at the end of the second day from an invited psychologist before transitioning to our departmental awards ceremony and a celebratory reception. Last semester, we expanded this event by hosting our first department-wide trivia game as part of our research symposium programming. The game show-style trivia game served as the anchor event for the first day of the research symposium.

Our chapter organizes many academically driven events throughout the year, but we chose to develop this event because we wanted to introduce a social activity that would strengthen the bonds between our members, majors, and faculty. We thought it would make for a fun activity for the end of the year to help everyone decompress after their hard work in their studies and research projects.

The Rules of the Game

We based the event on the board game Wits & Wagers (specifically the Vegas edition), in which people guess a numerical answer for a random and often impossible-to-know question. For example, one question from the base game asks: “How much did Google buy YouTube for in 2006?” Once each person has settled on an answer, people bet points (using cardboard betting chips) on which answer is closest to the actual answer (or bet that all of the answers are too low/high). The person who has the highest value in betting chips by the end of the seven questions wins the game. We took this idea and adapted it into a department-wide social event by having people work in small teams consisting of both faculty and students. We also developed our own questions that were related to the field of psychology. This way, we could all have fun together while learning some fairly obscure pieces of information about the field.

We were fortunate that our faculty advisor already owned the game prior to the event, so she had the physical components we needed. She was then able to take some images gathered from the company that produced the game (North Star Games) and put together a slide presentation that was used to present the questions as well as the potential answers teams could bet on as each team made their choices and brought their answer boards to the front of the room.

Questions (and Answers!)

A lot of research went into creating good trivia questions for the game in the weeks preceding the event. We needed to ask questions related to psychology that the players would not know the answers to off the top of their heads. The goal of the game show version of this game is to encourage the players to engage in a discussion/debate that will lead them closer to the right answer. If people were likely to know the answers right away—especially the professors—then it would not have been as fun!

Wits & Wagers: UMW Psi Chi Edition Questions (NOTE: Questions were developed in February 2018)

Q: As of February 2018, how many journals are indexed in PsycINFO?
A: 2,373

Q: What was the sample size in Mary Ainsworth’s “strange situation” experiment?
A: 56

Q: How many people have received the American Psychological Association’s prestigious International Humanitarian Award?
A: 16

Q: How many psychiatrists voted to remove homosexuality from the DSM in 1973?
A: 5,854

Q: In what year was Franz Joseph Gall, the founder of phrenology, born?
A: 1,758

Q: How many trials were completed in Perrin and Spencer’s replication of Asch’s line matching study using chemistry and math students?
A: 396

Q: How many active Psi Chi chapters are there?
A: 1,133

Event Promotions

Because this event was part of the programming for our annual departmental research symposium, we already knew that faculty and students would be attending the larger event. Given this, in the weeks leading up to the symposium, we added “trivia game show” to our publicity campaign using flyers and emails. We also included information about this event in the formal program that was shared with majors electronically in advance of the symposium as well as in hard copies at the event. Because majors attended the symposium to support their fellow students during their presentations, it was also easy to actively recruit players throughout the day.

Caption: Although not everyone could stick around for a group photo, everyone enjoyed the fun time together.

On Game Day

Some chapter officers worked with the building staff to revise the setup of the room as we transitioned from a poster session to the game show. Meanwhile, our faculty advisor worked with other officers to randomize faculty and students into the seven groups for the game. Our faculty advisor then served as the host and game facilitator while the officers helped the event run smoothly.

We had a great turnout for a late-afternoon, first-time event. In all, about 40 people participated. We were particularly happy that all but one of our faculty members competed, and the one person who couldn’t wanted to be there but had a prior commitment that conflicted with the event. The majors who participated really enjoyed being on equal footing as they worked with their faculty teammates to try to answer the questions and then decide on the best way to bet their point chips. We learned a lot of random facts for all branches of psychology—this was especially true for the officers given that we were the one searching for good questions.

Caption 3: The winning team was actually our smallest group—small but mighty!

Play Again? Game On!

Our chapter hopes to continue our psychology trivia game show for years to come. In fact, we would like to plan more events like it in the future! After all, how many events end with people already asking when the next one will be held? For the next event, we would like to extend the game by asking more questions and making it a slightly longer event. A typical Wits & Wagers game consists of seven questions, and that’s how we played this time around. We hope to do two rounds of seven questions each next year while further stepping up the challenge by introducing even more challenging questions for people to answer.

We highly recommend for other chapters to conduct similar events at their own schools. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to develop creative trivia questions because it can take longer than you might think. Most importantly, have fun with it, and those participating will too!
