Psychology students receive honors at semester-ending symposium
More than 70 UW-Green Bay psychology students conducted original research and displayed their work at an end-of-the-semester poster session.
Each of these studies represents original research that includes study design, data collection and analysis. Before the poster sessions, students participated in an oral defense of their work and individually, wrote a scientific paper on their research.
Three awards were given out for outstanding projects: Faith VerBruggen, Kirsten Wideman, Amber Jagodzinski and Malorie Styles for their project, Body Language and Impression Formation; Justine Arnoldussen-Gravedoni, Thomas Bergeron, Breanna Scharp and Tanner Kelly for Homesickness in Relation to Hometown Distance in University Students; and Melissa J. Corrigan, Pamela Shellfield, Bao Nhia Xiong and Daniele Wiegand for The Influence of Romantic Relationships on Self-Esteem.
This year, the poster session was followed by the awarding of the UWGB Psych Star Awards. Receiving the Psych Service Star Award for outstanding level of involvement in support of other students, the Psychology Department, UW-Green Bay, and/or the community was Jennifer Carrillo (honorable mention to Sarah Miller).
Receiving the Psych Research Star Award for evidence of outstanding research efforts both in quality and quantity including: outstanding concept, execution, and final product, was Will Vogt (honorable mention to Chad Osteen).
