Our application cycle has been closed for the 2022-2023 academic school year. 

FLMP is a mentorship opportunity for first-year students to get connected with on-campus community.

Benefits include:

  • Acknowledgement as a chapter member in your first year

  • Mentorship from a Psi Chi member

  • Access to chapter benefits

  • Networking opportunities
