The Child Psychology Student Organization (CPSO) provides undergraduate students who are interested in developmental psychology with volunteer opportunities on campus and in the community, research mentorships with ICD faculty, and social events with other ICD students.

Last year’s events included:

  • A graduate student panel
  • Panel of recent alumni
  • Directed research night
  • Relay for Life
  • Volunteer events at the Ronald McDonald House and People Serving People

CPSO is run by a board of student volunteers who serve as officers for the group.

How would I describe my experience at ICD? From meeting with our academic advisor to attending Child Psychology Student Organization meetings, I can say that I have enjoyed every part of it.
