STAFF REPORTS


ELMIRA, N.Y. -- The Elmira College Chapter of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology, recently inducted 13 new members during a ceremony and reception held in Cowles Hall. This year's inductees include:
Owen Richter of South Dayton, NY (14138)
Emily Selbert of Colden, NY (14033)

Psi Chi was founded in 1929 with the goal of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship for the purpose of advancing both the science and application of psychology. Psi Chi's symbol is based on the Greek letters psi and chi, which have been used for decades in the Psi Chi induction ritual to express the Greek words psyche and cheires, which in turn symbolize mind (scholarship and the enrichment of the mind) and hands (fellowship and cooperation in research).
Since its founding 1971, the Elmira College chapter has been inducting students of high academic standing into Psi Chi's ranks.

Elmira College is a private, coeducational, Phi Beta Kappa college founded in 1855, located in Elmira, New York.
