A Chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society in psychology, was chartered in April 1993. Founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of psychology, Psi Chi is open to graduates and undergraduates who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests. Psi Chi is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society.

The ceremony took place as part of Randolph College’s Honor Society Joint Induction, a celebration of student academic achievement across a variety of disciplines. Honor societies in chemistry, classics, communication studies, economics, English, physics, political science, psychology and sociology, as well as Phi Beta Kappa, all inducted their new honorees at the event.
