RISE Flyer

Come out and join RISE for conversations regarding various topics on October 20th (Diversity), October 27th (Psychology of a Black Man), and November 1st (Psychology of a Black Woman). "Thinking Outside of the Box" will be held in the Lynn Duncan room in the Owings Mill's Rockland building from 6:30-7:30 PM. Come out and let your voice be heard!

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

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.

The Psychology Club traded empathic conjectures for gloves and trash bags as they ventured into one of the Greenspring Campus gardens for Make A Difference Day. The environmental fervor and interpersonal bonding that occurred was nearly unmatched as like one cohesive vacuum, the proud Psychology Club valiantly swept away the filth. Brightened smiles of unwavering optimism and consanguinity radiated throughout this team effort as this Club definitively proves that when people come together there can be no end to what may be accomplished.

It was in the midst of a grueling summer when psychology faculty and some wayward students heard the news that the once proud home known as the Exchange would no longer be part of the Department. A timid little building, the Cuvilly Faculty Exchange served as a place where students and teachers could intermingle and network in the most professional ways imaginable. It was a haven for the downtrodden, for that hopeless student just attempting to get the passing grade, for that existentially distressed worker who searches for meaning in plastered tile drywall; it was home. Yet in search of brighter and better futures, the Department packed its materials and headed to its new space: the Science Center.

The center was aptly named for the new discipline that would be inhabiting it, and with the lab space made available, students have more opportunities than ever before (with a human and invertebrate animal research lab in the works). Faculty members have even added their own special touches to the area, whether it be Dr. Bilgrave's sofa or Dr. Iannone's proud stash of peppermint candies near her office. Although the Exchange is gone, it is never forgotten, and it lives on in this new Science Center, this new home.
