Several animals were brought to the Manuszak Center for students and faculty to appreciate and learn about this week, including rarer insect species, snakes, a baby goat, and a baby kangaroo. Pictured below is Dr. Iannone cradling the swaddled and gentle baby kangaroo.

Dr. Tulloch's Animal Behavior class had two new visits from different animals this month. The first was Bubba the miniature Vietnamese pig, belonging to students Shannon Logue and Ashley Bialiff.

Students attempted to condition Bubba to choose a certain blanket over another when placed on the floor.

The second guests were two dogs of different breeds, Zora and Canela.

The goal with this activity was for the students to observe breed differences in canine aggresssion. Both dogs were allowed to wander the room with students paying particular attention to their interactions.

Several students from the Psychology department attended the annual EPA Conference (Eastern Psychological Association meeting) from March 5-7, 2015, accompanied by several Psychology faculty members.

The EPA is one of the oldest psychological associations in the U.S. and the annual conference acts as an important gathering to communicate progress across the broad field of Psychology.

Student Samuel Conteh presents his substance-based research on Rodent behavior.

Students Christina Ceary and Catherine Butt present a behavior-based joint study.

Attending the three-day conference is an excellent opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the larger academic scope of Psychology. We are very proud of our students and their academic accomplishments!

Gabby Green, a Stevenson University Alumni, returned to her alma mater to share her experiences after graduation with students of Dr. Tulloch's Animal Behavior class.

Gabby graduated with a degree in Psychology and continued her education through the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, where she received her master's degree in Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare. Gabby also discussed her current career path working with animal welfare policies at the Humane Society of America.

In anticipation of the upcoming annual Bee Green day celebration for environmental awareness, Psychology faculty and students gathered to brainstorm and test out creative projects. With plants, cardboard, repurposed picture frames, and lots and lots of soil, ideas were shared and worked out to perfection.
