Psychology Students Provide Needed Friendship

by Madi Cannon, Public Relations Writer

Students from Cedarville University’s psychology organization, Psi Kappa Theta (PKT), are serving the local community through a partnership with Greenewood Manor in Xenia, Ohio. 

For the last 10 years, PKT has built unity in the psychology department by connecting students with each other and with professors. Student members explore the field of psychology through one academic meeting and one service project each month. 
“When you think of psychology, you think of service,” said Taylor Hobbs, senior psychology major from Fort Kent, Maine. “This is our chance to serve. It benefits us to serve others and gives us a great perspective.”

The PKT students engage with Greenewood Manor residents through a variety of music, games and physical activities. Both the residents and the staff benefit from the encouragement and relationships the students foster during their visits. 

PKT members visit Greenewood Manor once a month, typically the first Saturday of the month.
