A Historic Debut: Harvard Extension School Psychology Student Society

The Harvard Extension Student Psychological Society (HES PSS) recently held its historic debut event, which was a fantastic success. The event marked a significant milestone for HESA, as it has been nearly a decade since a student-created organization was approved. During the event, HES PSS shared the stage with the newly created HESA societies: the Creative Writing and Literature Society, the Global Development Practice Society, and the Industrial/Organizational Psychology Society. We couldn't have been more honored to be in such great company.

For those who could not attend our event last Saturday, we missed you, but no worries! We recorded the event and are happy to share our HES PSS introduction with you. In this video, you'll hear from Maya, our Director of Events, as she talks about our vision, mission, and values. You'll also enjoy our special guest speaker Dr Meyersburg's tips and resources for a successful path at HES.
