Sierra Nevada College Psychology Students Attend 26th Annual APS Convention

Sierra Nevada College Psychology Students attended the 26th annual Association for Psychological Sciences (APS) conference held from May 22-25 in San Francisco, CA.  Undergraduate student researchers included Margaret K. Burns and Kallie B. Day.  Sierra Nevada College alumni included Constance A. Barnes.  Christina M. Frederick was also in attendance and presented alongside each of the students mentioned above.

The presentations included Cosmetics Use is Irrelevant When Considering Student Retention by Margaret K. Burns and Christina M. Frederick and Active Learning in Practice: Alignment and Misalignment of Faculty and Undergraduate Perspectives by Christina M. Frederick, Constance A. Barnes, Carly S. Courtney, Briana T. Crespo, Kallie B. Day, Robert D. King.

A unexpected highlight of the trip included meeting Dr. Philip Zimbardo who led the Stanford Prison Experiment in 1971.

We look forward to attending many more APS conferences in the future.
