Psychology major Carissa Rohde won this year's Teresa Peck Award for best paper on gender issues (written for Dr. Beyer's Psychology of Gender class). The award is worth $400. Great accomplishment!
Simmi Bharvani presents her research on Virtual Reality and Empathy at the Undergraduate Research Day at UW-Parkside.
Hannah Yonke won the outstanding graduate award. She also made the front page of the Kenosha News. Way to go, Hannah!

One of our students, Samantha Noll, received an undergraduate research grant from Psi Chi to conduct her research on visual change detection in deaf individuals (she got $2900)! Good job Sam!
Simmi Bharvani attended Stanford University for a summer program of classes. She applied at https://summer.stanford.edu for this program and received a scholarship whereby she only had to pay for room and board (and her travels there). She says that it was an incredible experience. I hope some of you will apply next summer.
