Psychology students win awards at spring conference

From Dr. Ryan Newell, Professor of Psychology, sends this good news:

Competing against Oklahoma universities, we took 1st, 2nd and 5th place in the undergraduate paper competition last Friday at the 27th annual Oklahoma Psychological Society Spring Research Conference.  These were presentations of original, empirical research.  Our students are to be commended – they worked very hard throughout the year on these projects and continue to represent OC well at our state conference.

Undergraduate Paper Awards
1st place:  Katie Van Sickle,  Predicting Male Body Esteem with Personality Traits and Women’s Presence in the Room.
2nd place: Whitney Frisk,  Modern Music and its Effects on Immediate and Delayed Recall
5th place:  Masashi Kawamura,  Credit Card Influences on the Purchase Decision Making Process

Congratulations to our students and their professors, Dr. Ryan Newell,  Dr. Holly Osburn, and Dr. Scott Harper.
