Faculty Coffee Hours
At least once each semester, the Psi Chi students organize a faculty coffee hour, inviting their favorite
faculty member to enjoy conversation and refreshments. All U.R.I. students are welcome to participate in these events.
U.R.I. Psi Chi and Psychology Club students often organize philanthropic events to benefit charitable organizations. Every December, they make Christmas ornaments for the Hasbro Toy Company. For each toy donated to Hasbro, a needy child receives a toy for the holidays. The Psi Chi and Psychology Club students enjoy making the holiday season more enjoyable for many young children. The Psi Chi and Psychology Club students are shown here with Professor Charles Collyer, holding some of their hand-made ornaments.
Our students also enjoy visiting local nursing homes to visit with the residents. At Halloween, pumpkin painting is a fun activity for our students to share with others.
Students have also donated warm clothing and toiletry items to people living in a "Tent City" under the Crawford Street Bridge. Read the news article
