Psychology Engagement Team (PET)

Psychology Engagement Team (PET)


Our goal is to have fun while we provide outreach to the community in ways that can have a positive impact on someone’s life. Even if you participate in other student groups or through a sorority/fraternity, PET will provide you with an opportunity to meet other psychology majors who share your interests and may have common career goals. Through PET, you can build lasting connections for life after college and into grad school and jobs.  Check out Facebook  and more and Get Psyched!


Each year PET plans and participates in a wide variety of events to get Psychology students connected to the discipline, the department, and their peers. We also plan Mental Health Awareness week every March where students can attend many events that provide mental health education and outreach. This week-long event is a collaboration between PET and other groups across campus to plan events ranging from crafting donations for Gompers children, to walking in the Out Of The Darkness Campus Walk, or attending health wellness talks. PET has also held Seasons of Growth journaling events and therapy dogs as healthy coping mechanisms for mental health. Our meetings consist of contribution to planning these events as well as strengthening friendships with our fellow peers through discussion of psychology and mental health.
