“Students, community members, and families all come together at A Walk Towards Hope, the Counseling Center’s first suicide prevention and awareness walk. Come to walk in solidarity to bring awareness to growing college suicide rates. But, stay for the great speakers, activities, performances, prizes, food, and fun! All are welcome!”

Harvey Fundraiser

On Friday September 22nd-Thursday September 28th, Psi Chi members sold breakfast tacos from 8-11:00am at the quad. Regardless of the weather, members were out there raising money for those affected by hurricane Harvey. Overall we had several donations and it turned out to be a great opportunity to meet new people while volunteering for a great cause! 

Live Oak Halloween Party

On Saturday October 25th 2014, Psi Chi students headed to Live Oak, a therapeutic community that provides long term care for those with cognitive disabilities. We threw a Halloween party complete with dancing, face painting, bean bag tosses, bingo, mummy wrapping competitions, a cake walk and some karaoke! It was a great time as always with this group, and we were lucky enough to witness some truly skilled dance moves and karaoke.

Baby goats!

The Halloween party was a great success and the residents were all persuaded into dancing and laughing hysterically by the end of the day. If you missed this trip, don’t worry! There are still more to come this semester.

Please join us in a few weeks for our next volunteer trip to Austin State Hospital on Saturday November, 15th!
