Summer 2014 Newsletter

Dear Psychology Alumni:

Please take a moment to browse photos and stories from graduation 2014. One hundred and fifty students graduated this May with a degree in Psychology and it was a day of celebrating with friends and family, reflecting on time spent at W&M, and contemplating new beginnings. Join us in wishing this graduating class the best of luck in their next chapter and adventure.

Our students and faculty received many awards this spring. Congratulations to the department chair Professor Janice Zeman for receiving a Plumeri Award for Faculty Excellence. Kudos to Peter Vishton for being named as the next graduate student ombudsperson. Two masters students, Nicholas Alt and David Newman, were selected by The National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institute (NSF-EAPSI) to conduct research this summer in Japan and Korea.,-students-receive-awards.php
