Psychological Science Spring Symposium

Posted on May 29th, 2014 by


Gustavus Adolphus College’s Psychological Science department recently held their annual Spring Symposium in the Beck Hall atrium. There were 15 student groups and four honors students who presented research conducted throughout the year. Topics ranged from second language learning and stereotype threats to emotional self-regulation in athletes and non-athletes. Our psychological science department also works closely with the Southern Minnesota Children’s Museum and as a result,  our students presented research on motor imitation development in grade school children and the influence of conformity on preschoolers’ selective trust.

Additionally, we held the Psychological Science end of the year party for our majors after the symposium. Everyone enjoyed the lasagna dinner with events which included Jib Jab dance “performances” by faculty, faculty awards presented by Psi Chi members, departmental trivia and senior recognition. Special thanks to Dr. Dick Martin for coordinating this fun-filled event!
