The Dem Room (AS 348) is a meeting place for all psychology students. Feel free to use this space to:
- Work on your courses
- Use the computers and other psychology resources

Carly MacIsaac, President
My name is Carly MacIsaac, I am in my fifth year of a B.A in Psychology, and I am super excited to be this year’s president! My main interest is in animal psychology, so if you are interested in subscribing to daily cat facts, drop by the Dem Room (AS 348), to chat with me (brackets here so you go back and notice my lame French pun). My biggest hope for this year is that we can make the Psychology Society feel more open and inclusive for all students of all majors. I believe we have a great team this year who will provide lots of opportunities for both members and non-members to attend fun events, have mental health breaks, and the chance to meet new people and make new friends. You can always reach me over e-mail or Facebook Messenger, or of course, in the Dem Room, where I pretty much live at this point.
Hello everyone, my name is Renee Duffy, and I am in my fourth year of a BA. (Hons.) in Psychology. Throughout the past two years, I have been a general member of the Psychology Society, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to be the Vice Present this year! Being involved in this society has given me the chance to meet amazing people and learn the different opportunities a major in Psychology can bring you. This society is a great way to get involved and meet new people at Grenfell Campus. We participate in events to help reduce the stigma and raise awareness surrounding different domains of psychology. Along with this, we help in fundraising for different organizations in Corner Brook and surrounding towns. We are not exclusive to psychology majors, so we welcome all students, of all different majors, to get involved! I hope to see some new and old faces this year, and I am excited to hear all the ideas that come forth from everyone involved. If you have any questions you can email me or drop by the dem room (AS 348) and I would be happy to help!
Anna Dollimount, Treasurer
Hey everyone! My name is Anna Dollimount and I am in my third year of a BSc with a major in Psychology. You may recognize me as one of the former social media reps from last year’s executive. This year I have taken on the role of treasurer and I could not be more excited about it. I am really looking forward to getting back to work with the Psychology Society to help run events, encouraging new members to join, and making the dem room a comfortable space. The society is a great way to meet people in the psychology program (and also in other programs) who share common interests and I cannot encourage people enough to join it. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone at the meetings and events this year! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at my email or come find me around campus!
Chloe Briand, Social Media Representative
Hi everyone! My name is Chloe and I'm currently in my fourth year of a psychology degree. I am also one of the social media representatives for the psych society for the 2019-2020 school year. My main interest in psychology is mental health and disorders. If I had one goal for the psychology society this year, it would be for it to be more inclusive and more supportive other societies. In saying so, feel free to drop by the dem (AS 348)! You're sure to meet a friendly face.
Keira Francis, Social Media Representative
Hi everyone! My name is Keira Francis, and I am so excited to be one of the social media representatives for the Psychology Society this year! I am currently in my third year of a B.A in Psychology. I joined the Psychology Society last year when I became interested in getting to know more people in my program and getting more involved with things at Grenfell. I immediately found a kind and welcoming group of people that helped make my experience at Grenfell much more enjoyable, which is exactly what I hope to do for other students this year. We have so many fundraisers and other exciting events planned for this year, and we can’t wait for you to join us! All are welcome in our society!
Abbie Morales, Secretary
Hi everyone! My name is Abbie Ching Morales, and I am currently in my third year of a BSc. in Psychology. The experience I have had with the Psychology Society in the past two years have been fun and exciting, as well as refreshing! The Psychology Society is an organization where students (psychology majors or not) can get involved with organizing fun-filled events for students, while also raising funds and spreading awareness about issues surrounding mental health. I am very excited to be one of the executives for this semester. I cannot wait to see both new and familiar faces, to meet new friends, and to be able to work with all of you to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around mental health. If you have any questions or if you want to be a part of the society, do not hesitate to drop by the Dem Room (AS 348) or email me. You are all welcome and I hope to see you around!
