Joshua Thompson of Oreana, IL was inducted to the new Psi Chi chapter at Blackburn College on February 10, 2014. Psi Chi is an international honor society for Psychology majors and minors. Dr. Pamela Danker, Professor of Psychology, sponsored the forming of the brand new Psi Chi chapter at Blackburn and inducted the first ten members. Induction into the society is a difficult and hard-earned privilege that takes a sharp mind to accomplish. The society’s members are exclusively second semester sophomores with a major/minor in Psychology. In addition to the major requirement, members must have and maintain a 3.0 GPA in their Psychology courses as well as their overall courses. Members must also be within the top 35% of their own class to achieve and keep membership.
