Saint Mary's is a Liberal Arts Private College. I obtained a very well rounded education including religious and seminar courses. While learning about the behavioral sciences I also acquired knowledge in APA formatting, SPSS, and extensive research and assessment skills.
I also debated in class discussions in regards to text by authors such as Socrates, Plato, Freud, Thoreau, and many more.
Psi Chi: This is an honors society of Psychology that I was invited to join the beginning of my third year at Saint Marys. I initiated and organized the chapter gaining the participation of over 40 students in 2 months. Designed and participated in several volunteer events for children. Organized a banquet to honor the students and their achievements in front of family and friends.
Outside Research: I was selected out of a pool of 50 candidates to do outside research with my professor and 2 other students. We created the concept, conducted studies, analyzed results, and interpreted statistics. We presented our research at the annual Psychology Conference of Undergraduate Research.
Psychology Club: This was a social tool I used to gain awareness for Psi Chi and network with other successful students. We would stay up-date on current events and help support student studies, achievements, and faculty.
