News & Events


Each semester the Psychology Department staff posts information about upcoming conferences, including pertinent information relating to dates, locations, deadlines for registration, etc. in order to facilitate student involvement. Supplemental email alerts also help students stay apprised of valuable presentation, internship, and occupational opportunities. Be sure to watch the monitor in the Psychology/ Neuroscience department of Thomas Hall for upcoming conference information!


The Think Psych! Newsletter is distributed electronically on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month in the academic year to keep students informed about psychology-related events, jobs, and internships, as well as good news from faculty, current students, and alumni.   If you have information that you would like to be included in an upcoming newsletter or you would like to begin receiving the newsletter, please contact Dr. Jennifer Stevenson at For past issues click on this link.

Students are encouraged to sign up for research and there are various opportunities available each semester.  Students are encouraged to speak with any of our Psychology or Neuroscience faculty and inquire what research they are currently working on as well as what research they will be working on in the future.  Handouts are available in the department for students to review as they plan their next semester.

Pause for Paws

Pause for Paws is an event coordinated by Professor Brenda Lederach. It is an opportunity for students who may be away from their furry family members to spend time with the four-legged pets of the faculty and staff.  The therapy these dogs provide to all attendees - whether it be with a wet nose or a loving lick - is free of charge and a joy to behold!
