Psychology Department

Your Griffin Guides

The Griffin Guides in Psychology are student peer mentors who work closely to build community within the Psychology department. We help fellow students who are majoring in Psychology and Neuroscience, especially those in their first and second years, as a peer resource for how to navigate everything from class listings within Psychology to the transition into Reed culture. As community builders, we organize and host events both meant to involve, support, and connect students within the department as well as to unite students, faculty, and staff. We hope to cultivate relationships and engagement in order to maintain a strong support system within the department as well as create an inclusive and approachable environment.
