WORCESTER – The Assumption College Department of Psychology has announced that Thomas Mandozzi, of Natick, has become a member of the Psychology National Honor Society, Psi Chi. Mandozzi, Class of 2018, was inducted into the honor society.
“Students named to Assumption College’s chapter of Psi Chi have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to and mastery of their academic studies,” said Louise Carroll Keeley, provost and vice president of academic affairs at the College. “Earning membership to an honor society is among the highest academic recognitions for an undergraduate.”
Psi Chi was founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduates, of junior or senior academic standing, who have chosen psychology as their major or minor.
Inductees must also have completed nine semester hours of psychology courses, rank in the top 35 percent of their class, and have a minimum grade point average of 3.25, in both psychology classes and in overall cumulative grades.
Psi Chi members are invited to submit scholarly articles to the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research, apply for research grants, and attend and present at regional and national conferences.
Founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption in Worcester, Assumption College is a Catholic liberal arts institution that offers undergraduate students 41 majors and 48 minors in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies; as well as master’s and continuing education degrees and professional certificate programs-each through an educational experience that is grounded in the rich Catholic intellectual tradition.
