Psychology/Sociology Club

Due to Spring Break, the next meeting of the Psychology/Sociology Club will have its next meeting on Tuesday, March 2, at 6:27 p.m. in Room 3 of the Psychology/Sociology Building. We will be discussing our plans to attend the meeting of the Georgia Psychological Society to be held on Saturday, March 27 at Macon State College. The registration deadline is March 15, so if you are planning to go to the GPS meeting you should either attend the March 2 club meeting or see Dr. Cotter for more information.

Order your cap and gown!

If you are planning to graduate in the Spring 2010 semester, you need to think about ordering your cap and gown. The deadline is March 22. The cost of the cap and gown is included in your graduation application fee, but you still need to order it so you can specify what size you need.

Orders for the cap and gown need to be placed online. To see the instructions for placing an order, go to the following web page (and ignore the thing at the top about December graduation):

If you want to order announcements or anything else, you can do it through that too. The link on that page called "Flyer from Herff Jones" contains the website address for placing orders as well as pricing information.
