The Psychology Kingdom is a chartered campus organization for students with an interest in Psychology.
The unusual name has its origin in the early 1970’s when Psychology professor,
Dr. John Pilley began organizing events for psychology students.
The kingdom formed with Dr. Pilley and his wife, Sally as the King and Queen.
Students earned positions of Duke, Prince and even DeerSlayer (our own Dr. Reid!)
The royalty of the group has faded into myth-like status,
but the tradition of gathering for academic, service and social events continues today.
Some of our Service projects include participation in the Memory Walk to benefit the
Alzheimer's Association, the Twin Towers Halloween Carnival and Wofford's Terrier Play Day.
Social events include a Welcome Back luncheon, football and baseball tailgates, the annual Psychology
faculty/staff chili cook-off, midterm and final study breaks, decorating a golf cart and racing in the annual
Terrio Golf Cart races, our annual Holiday Party and our End of the Year cook-out.
Academic events include Student Research Presentations, guest speakers from all areas
of psychology, and seminars on applying to grad school.
