Psychology News

Date: Oct 2016

RISE's event series continued with the Psychology of a Black Man hosted by Dr. Leary. The impassioned and informed Dr. Leary spoke about his experience while extending it to the black experience and psychology. With a high student turn out, there is no doubt that this event was a success.

Students gathered to listen as their fellow colleagues became surrogates for the candidates of the current election cycle. Larry Fort represented Hillary Clinton, Nick Kelly represented Trump, and Malik Mohammed represented Jill Stein. The night saw emblazoned verbal combat between the student surrogates, stirred on by moderators such as Dr. Tulloch and Dr. Boulton. In the end, in an almost prophetic warning, Stein and Clinton split the vote as Trump ran away with victory.

On October 17th and 18th from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM the Psychology Club is hosting a fundraiser at Pie Five. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to help fund psychology student activities, the only catch is that you must possess a flyer for the money to go towards the cause. It is important that members and non-members attend, so come on out and enjoy some pizza with good company. For questions or access to the flyer please email ssommers@stevenson.edu.

Stevenson's own RISE hosted a self-defense class to empower women, instructed by Stevenson's very own Carol Zimmerman.The event was both exciting and educational. Students learned how to assimilate moves and how to escape them if needed. There was also discussion about the importance of being aware and what actions to take should someone become a target, focusing on what specifically makes young girls a target. Students met and associated with peers who they may not have known prior to the event, helping each other learn tactical moves. The event was such a success that RISE plans on hosting more.
