SPA is a student-run organization that provides skills and experience to undergraduate students
interested in the study of psychology. Through volunteering, exposure to professional research, and
interaction with faculty, SPA gives its members a taste of what the study of psychology involves.
Membership in the SPA is open to all majors (freshman through seniors). More information about
SPA can be found on the bulletin board across from the 1st floor elevators in the Psychology building.
