THE I/O PSYCHOLOGY AREA
Moving to a new city, starting at a new university, or beginning a new program can be overwhelming and intimidating. Here, we provide links to a collection of websites that will help familiarize yourself with the city of London, with the school and some of its fantastic resources, and with some of the professional organizations associated with I/O psychology. If you have any further questions about any of these areas, feel free to contact our general inquiry email at email@example.com.

Society of Graduate Students (SOGS)
Being a graduate student means that your health care, dental, and vision costs will be insured under the SOGS plan (unless you have an alternative health plan). Learn about the details of this plan, as well as obtain information about bus passes (included with tuition through SOGS), the GRAD CLUB (where grad students and faculty occasionally unwind with colleagues and libations), financial assistance, graduate teaching awards, special information for international students, and other useful links.
All TAs and Postdocs have certain rights and responsibilities outlined in the collective agreement. In addition to raising awareness and providing support around TA rights, the PSAC Union assists members in other ways, such as scholarships, bursaries, and an extended healthcare plan that all TAs and Postdocs have access to. Their website provides information on accessing financial support, teaching assistantship positions and regulations, and how to get involved.
Psychology Graduate Student Sport Teams and the UWO Fitness Center
First, it may be of interest to know that Psychology graduate students play on a variety of sports teams. These include ultimate Frisbee, year-round soccer (i.e., indoor and outdoor), city league soccer (summer), and fall and winter ball hockey. Additionally, groups of Psychology students and faculty play squash and tennis on campus. These present great opportunities to meet new people, socialize, and get a workout. Second, there is a new Fitness center that is free with tuition. It includes a full size weight room, many cardio machines, squash courts, an Olympic pool, aerobics classes, massage therapy, and anything else your fitness routine might require.
