Catawba College’s Psi Chi honor society inducted two new members recently.

SALISBURY — Catawba College’s chapter of Psi Chi honor society inducted two of seven new members April 24.

Marcia-Mariel Erhart of Rodgau, Germany, a psychology and math double major, and Rebecca Bradford of Quinton, Va., an exercise science major and psychology minor, bring the number of student members of the chapter to 22.

Psi Chi, the international honor society of psychology, was founded in 1929 with a mission to encourage excellence in scholarship and advance the science of psychology. Along with more than 700,000 lifetime members, Erhart and Bradford now have access to multiple membership benefits including international recognition for academic excellence and access to three publications and more than $400,000 in annual awards and grants.

Undergraduate students are eligible to join Psi Chi if they are pursuing a major or minor in psychology; have completed at least three semesters of full-time college coursework and at least nine semester credit hours of psychology courses; have a cumulative GPA that is in the top 35 percent of their class; and have a minimum 3.0 GPA average for psychology courses.

Inductions to Psi Chi are held most spring and fall semesters.

Lyn Boulter, professor emerita of psychology, was the chapter adviser for more than two decades. Erin Wood took the reins in the fall of 2015 when Boulter retired. Amy Holmes will be the new faculty adviser of the chapter starting in the fall.
