Psychology faculty Dr. Virgina Iannone and Dr. Richard Metzger arrived at Stevenson Bee Green day with their animal compatriots in tow. Dr. Metzger brought along his stalwart canine Izzy, and Dr. Iannone arrived with her insatiable rabbit, Winston. Both animals demonstrated the important message of animal assisted therapy which guest speaker Cathy Schmidt discussed vehemently. On this Bee Green day, we at the Psychology Department say, "Be kind to your furry friends."

Four students arrived at the Ratcliffe Center on the Owings Mills Campus to debate reasons why they support their chosen candidates. Three of these students were psychology students: Larry Fort supporting Bernie Sanders, Caitlyn Miller supporting Hillary Clinton, and Rachel Clein supporting John Kasich. Nicholas Kelly championed for the cause of notorious business man Donald Trump. The night saw fireworks ignite over wall controversies, immigration, healthcare, entitlements, and education, served with a side of pizza. Dr. Ingrid K. Tulloch and Dr. Alex Boulton moderated the debate. While flares erupted between Trump and Sanders, Fort's fervor in spreading Sanders' message led him to victory with a resounding 25 votes.
Dr. Cecilia Cheung visited Stevenson University's Greenspring Campus from University of California, Riverside to discuss her research on the role of parents and teachers in children's learning. The first half of the event dealt with Dr. Cheung discussing her research where she emphasized a cross-cultural approach to the question. She enlightened Stevenson students as to the environment's role of children's motivation and achievement in school. The latter half of the event dealt with an engaging discussion between Dr. Cheung and the audience. We sincerely hope she visits again.
Humanistic Therapist Dr. Dyer P. Bilgrave, Sexologist Dr. Kate Thomas, Biological Psychologist Dr. Ingrid K. Tulloch, and Social Psychologist Dr. Ryan Schurtz discussed issues of the 'heart and of the pants' on a panel Tuesday night, March 29th. The panel event was hosted by the Psychology Club and moderated by Larry Fort. The first half of the event dealt with questions such as the role of monogamy in modern society and signs of weakness in a relationship. The second half dealt with questions asked by the audience, some of which dealt with the nature of fetishes and whether 'once a cheater always a cheater.'
