The Department of Psychological Science held its annual Honors Night on Monday, April 24th. The event began with Welcoming Remarks by Dr. Escoto. This was followed by a wonderful presentation by Dr. Jennifer Laney (2009) about her experiences in graduate school and advice for graduating seniors. This was followed by Dr. Bachiochi introducing the recipients of Departmental Honors. This year, we celebrated 14 students who earned Departmental Honors, two of whom earned Highest Distinction for their outstanding performance on the department’s Exit Examination (scoring above the 80% percentile, nationwide) and presenting research at a state or national conference.
