No website specific to club; more information is available about how the club got its start, however. A sample newsletter from the organization is also available online.

Mission:

"To create and maintain a central and comprehensive resource area intended to support Penn State University World Campus undergraduate psychology students by: 1) building a sense of community and identity where members can share ideas and experiences, 2) encouraging members to pursue and excel in their present and future education goals, 3) fostering developing interests in professional fields of psychology, 4) providing opportunities for members to enhance the leadership and communication skills necessary for success in academic and other pursuits."

Description:

Billing itself as the first online-only psychology club in the world, the Penn State World Campus Psychology club fills a unique niche for students taking online psychology courses.

Can I Replicate This Group on My Campus?:

Definitely. Even though there is no brick-and-mortar campus connected to this particular student club, replicating an organization for students taking online classes is a great way to show leadership skills, meet other students, further develop a sense of community in an online environment, and, at the end of the day, meet some great people and make some great connections.
