Eastern Regional Spring Letter


Dear Eastern Psi Chi chapter members,

The eastern region has been dealing with an especially brutal winter, but spring will be here soon! It’s a busy time of year for students, and there are lots of exciting things happening for Psi Chi members! Dig out of the snowbanks and get involved in Psi Chi activities!

  • I hope you are planning to attend the annual EPA convention in Boston on March 13–15. We have Psi Chi programming you won’t want to miss including sessions on graduate school, what you can do with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and "EPA 101” for first time conference attendees. We are especially excited to have Dr. Anthony Greenwald of the University of Washington as our keynote speaker and a session on crowdsourcing research with information on how to become involved in Psi Chi’s collaborative research projects. The University of Hartford’s Psi Chi Chapter will present a workshop on leadership, including their success with a campus-wide anti-bullying initiative, and there will be a fascinating panel on working with linguistic minorities that is especially geared towards undergraduates. Go to for a complete program listing.
  • Check out the many awards and grants that are available to Psi Chi members. Nominate your leaders, faculty advisor, and chapter!
  • Check out and/or submit to our two organizational publications: the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research and Eye on Psi Chi.
  • Complete collaborative research to increase your research experiences and potentially get published!

Other exciting events in our region include:

  • The Hunter College Psychology Convention is full day event providing you with an opportunity to share your research with fellow students, faculty, and practitioners. It will be held March 30 in New York City. For more information, contact or Dr. Jason Young at
  • Gallaudet University (Washington, DC) is holding a Psi Chi sponsored research conference on April 2. The theme is "Diversity: Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone.” For more information, please contact Elizabeth Romero at

I have enjoyed meeting so many students and advisors in the eastern region this year. I am honored to serve as the Eastern Regional Vice-President and look forward to meeting more of you at the upcoming spring events!
