Academic Excellence in Psychology, Honor's Thesis

Congratulations to everyone! I would like to quote Marilyn Monroe who said, "This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth." We should all heed her advice in the years to come.

Favorite Time at SCSU

Living in Schwartz Hall and meeting the most amazing roommates (shoutout Shivani and Paula).

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I will miss working in the psychology department rat laboratory with Dr. Bordner and my fellow psychology students. I'm looking forward to more research and internship experiences in graduate school this fall. I can't wait to enter the Doctor of Psychology program at the University of Hartford!

Advice to Incoming Students

Don't compare yourself to others--any progress is progress. We all have different paths we wish to take. Don't be afraid to ask for help, that's what your professors and the Academic Success Center are for!
