PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS IN THE NEWS:

Seniors Presentations at Professional Conferences

This year, four of our seniors--Kamryn Magee, Amber Reiner, Zenbech Seifu, and Leah Falco--all had their senior thesis projects accepted for presentation at a professional psychology conference (The Southwestern Psychological Association conference)!  In addition, they won the following two awards:

  • Zen Seifu – SWPA Student Research Competition Finalist (for being “an exemplar of high-quality student work”).  Zen will present her thesis in a special Undergraduate Student Showcase session at the conference. 
  • Kamryn Magee – Psi Chi Regional Research Award (these awards are extremely competitive; out of hundreds of undergraduate students who submit projects to the conference, only 16 of these awards are handed out).  Kamryn will present her thesis in a special Psi Chi Research Awards session at the conference.
