Psychology Day was well organized, beginning with its registration, gathering of students, venue arrangement, and program schedule. Plans and preparations for the occasion were carefully laid out by the Psychology Society officers since the opening of the first semester of the current academic year. The objective of the activity was achieved: to create stronger camaraderie, establish sportsmanship, and unity in spirit among old and new psychology students, and heighten the students’ 5Cs: Collaboration, Commitment to Achieve, Creativity, Character and Competence.
