In May 2008, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences hosted the fourth 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:
Aaron Shilling was nominated to be the Psychology Department Student Marshal at the 2008 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.
Elizabeth Bean received the Outstanding Psychology Student Scholar award for her academic performance.
Jen Ladage received the Outstanding Service to the
Psychology Department award for her work as the Department Student Representative and being an active member of Psi Chi.
Anna Bridges & Colleen Gennicks (not pictured) received the Outstanding Psychology Senior Seminar Portfolio award for creating exceptional portfolios in the Senior Seminar capstone course.
Heidi Fisher & Isaac Moore received the Outstanding Student Research Projects for research on Pupil Dilation and Violent Images and
Shyness and Self-Presentation, both of which were supervised by Dr. Jason Barker.
