The NSU Psychology Club is a social organization made up primarily by psychology majors and minors. The Club, however, welcomes NSU students from all disciplines who have an interest in the psychological field. There are no academic requirements, just an enthusiasm for the study of the mind! The NSU Psych Club is an organization geared toward four ideals: charity, leadership, research and fun. Our objective is to be active not only in the classroom but on campus and within the community. Our passion for the study of behavior and the mind goes beyond just a simple reading assignment, but more toward application and practice. The club also gives students an opportunity to share research ideas, meet new friends, and participate in psychology events on campus. We welcome any students who are interested in research, goodwill, and, as always, having a good time.

CHRISTUS Cabrini Hospice:  A good opportunity to get some internship/volunteer hours related to psychology! 

“You only die on one day.  Every other day is about LIVING.”  So often the public assumes that hospice is about dying, when it actually is about living well.  Did you know that CHRISTUS Cabrini Hospice is the only faith based, not-for-profit Hospice in Alexandria? One of the integral services we provide is our Hospice Volunteer Program and we are always in need of volunteers, so we are looking for loving individuals interested in helping patients and their families at the end of life and those whom would enjoy clerical duties behind the scenes.

“Christ has no body on earth but yours; no hands, no feet on earth but yours. …. Yours are the hands with which He blessed all the world.” – St. Theresa of Avila

Our in-patient Hospice Grace Home is right within Cabrini Hospital, while we also serve individuals living in the community. The hours are flexible and training is provided.  I would love speaking with you further about our opportunities; please contact me, Hollie Sanders, Volunteer and Bereavement Coordinator at (318) 448-6764 ext. 6099 or hollie.sanders@christushealth.org. Thank you for your giving heart. God Bless.
