Big Plans on the Horizon for the Psychology Association



Golden Gate University’s Psychology Association has a lot up their sleeves for all the students this term! Whether you are a psychology student or not, they invite you join their e-mail newsletter to stay on top of their updates and be the first ones to find out about their events.


The club is working on putting together series of mini-podcasts that will cover interesting topics related to the field as well as the overall student experience at Golden Gate University, featuring guests to contribute in their conversations. It was also reported to us that they are working on putting together a new professional event that will take place on campus later in this term.

If you would like stay updated, connect with them on their Facebook page and sign up for their newsletter.
