Hi SNC Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Our amazing senior psychology students have been hard at work with their undergraduate research projects. Thank you to those of you who have participated in our studies; we greatly appreciate your time and cooperation. We can still use more participants! If you would like to be a participant in our research, please contact Christina M. Frederick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to come to our 7th annual Undergraduate Psychology Research Fair here at SNC on April 17th from 2-4pm in TCES 139/141. This is a great opportunity for psychology students to gain insight into what they will be doing in the coming years, as well as anyone else who is simply interested in learning about what makes us human. We’re excited to present our findings that we’ve so diligently worked to uncover. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Experimental Psychology students are gearing up to begin data collection this week for their independent research projects. These students have been constructing these projects since the beginning of the fall 2016 semester.
We look forward to seeing your friendly faces and we cannot thank you enough for your support and participation!
See you around campus!
The Psychology students are preparing to take the Major Field Test in Psychology in December. Christina M. Frederick put together an amazing Jeopardy game to help facilitate studying. On Wednesday, 11/16, the students met for an evening of Jeopardy fun, which included snacks and prizes for the top three players. The MFT performance is supported in multiple ways, 1) through the Capstone course, and 2) through study sessions such as this. We look forward to more Jeopardy nights in the future!
Four of our SNC Psychology alumni, Maggie Burns 14′, Sarah Fricke 15′, Carly Schleh 16′, and Kyle Kelly 16′, along with Henry Conover, visited the Research Methods class for a fun activity. This activity helped the Research Methods students tighten up their independent research project ideas.
It is always nice to have our alumni back on campus and interacting with our future graduates!
On Wednesday, 8/31, the Research Methods class took a trip outside to Patterson Lawn. The students participated in a research idea generating activity that included rolling die with various independent and dependent variables, throwing a football, and sharing their research ideas with the group.
These students are amping up to begin their own independent research projects and are looking forward to the process!
The SNC Psychology Students returned from the Stanford Undergraduate Psychology Conference that was held May 20th-21st. The students presented their independent research projects in both poster and oral sessions.
Our very own President, Dr. Alan Walker, also attended the event to support our students! Three generations of Alumni were present as well.
Our group had a wonderful time and we look forward to future opportunities to present research at Stanford University.
The SNC Psychology students are heading to the Stanford Undergraduate Research Conference on Wednesday, 5/18, to present their research. The Psychology department had a 100% acceptance rate for the conference!
Also joining us at Stanford, is our very own President Alan Walker! We look forward to representing SNC and are eager to share updates of the event.
Seniors in the Psychology Department are busy adding the finishing touches to their independent research projects in preparation for Sierra Nevada College’s 2016 Psychology Research Fair on April 18th, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The Psychology Research Fair provides the Psychology seniors an opportunity to present the culmination of their year-long process of researching, developing, and conducting their independent research projects. The event is open to the SNC community and support is encouraged from across disciplines.
We hope to see you all there!
SNC’s Provost Shannon Beets invited Psychology Program Chair, Christina Frederick, the senior assistant to the Psychology Program Chair, Sarah Fricke, along with psychology undergraduate students Emily Gross and Katie O’Hara to lead a workshop on survey and interview design for the North Lake Tahoe Truckee Leadership Program. The North Lake Tahoe Truckee Leadership Program aims to equip young professionals in the Tahoe/Truckee area with the skills they need to excel in their careers’.
