In May 2007, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences hosted the third annual reception for its graduating seniors. Students and faculty were able to share stories and say good-bye one final time before the graduation ceremony. Various departments also gave out awards to their outstanding graduates. In the Psychology Department, the following awards were given to our graduating seniors:
Alicia Barrese was nominated to be the Psychology Department Student Marshal at the 2007 graduation ceremony. This honor is given to a graduating senior who best exemplifies the goals and spirit of the department. At the graduation ceremony the student marshal leads the other psychology graduates through the procession and the presentation of their diplomas.
