Psychology Day on Friday, April 29

Posted on 4/27/2016 9:37:32 AM

Psychology Day is a new, day-long event packed with research talks by faculty members and students, panel discussions with practicum supervisors and IUP alumni about practicum opportunities, careers, employment, and graduate studies, and much more.

Psychology Day is aimed at psychology students, but will offer something for everyone at IUP, and the campus community is invited to attend. 

Psychology Day will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m. on April 29. The sessions will occur throughout the first floor of Uhler Hall, home to the IUP Psychology Department. One room will be devoted to seniors and will offer free food.

Professor Cristina Reitz-Krueger will kick off the event with a keynote speech on sexual health in college students. Students planning on taking the GRE this summer will want to take note of the GRE prep sessions conducted by Professor Mark Palumbo at 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

For more information, contact event co-chairs professors Tara Johnson ( tara.johnson@iup.edu) and Laura Knight ( laura.knight@iup.edu), or phone the Psychology Department at 724-357-2426.
