On November 18th, the SNC Psychological Society headed to Northern Nevada Hopes in Reno to distribute the socks that were donated throughout the entirety of the club sock drive.
It was an amazing experience for all who attended the event and we cannot wait to volunteer in the community in the future.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the sock drive!
On October 16th at 10:16 am, Sierra Nevada College participated in the Great Nevada ShakeOut drill to promote awareness and safety in the event of an earthquake.

Guest speaker Ellen Birrell gave a informative and eye-opening talk about the “wicked” problem of homelessness on October 16th.
Ellen’s specialty is in homeless health care where she has been an advocate for over 20 years. Her expertise shined through as she shared stories and videos of the homeless in our community.
Her advice to those who attended was to keep the conversation of homelessness alive. This is the first step in ending this “wicked” problem.
The career fair is today, October 9th, in SNC’s Patterson Hall from 11am to 2pm.

It is always great to see our alumni and hear about all of their achievements since graduation!

Beau D. Kissler, BA, and Christina M. Frederick, Ph.D., have just been published in the Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human Sciences for their work entitled, The Heart’s Hand in Creativity: The Effect of Coherence™ Meditation. Kissler conducted research that allowed him to collaborate with his dream organization, was invited to give a talk at Stanford University, and completed a project which led to his third publication.
The Psychology Department looks forward to introducing our next published student!
