Psychology students spend spring break in New York City at the Eastern Psychological Association Conference.
Spring break has notoriously been known as a time for college students to travel the world or catch up on some much needed sleep, but this year some of Brandywine’s Psychology students decided to skip the airports and get out of bed in order to experience the Eastern Psychological Association Conference in New York City.
The students spent Friday through Sunday in the Big Apple where they had the opportunity to attend multiple key notes including one about human sex trafficking which was a part of the United Nations Human Rights campaign.
“The trip was amazing,” Dan Kozieja, a senior Psychology student, said. “It was great to learn about all the hot topics in psychology as well as bond with my Penn State Brandywine peers.”
The conference featured speakers from highly accredited institutions like New York University and Harvard Medical School. These speakers spoke about many different areas of Psychology including Clinical, Social, and Applied.
“The talks were interesting, and it was really nice to see the city and go out with everybody,” Senior Psychology student Alex Wells said.
The students were offered this opportunity through the Psychology Club which funded the trip through the Student Activity fee. This school funded trip is one of many that various clubs offer to any student willing to attend throughout the year. Clubs and trips like this not only offer students an opportunity to network but also the opportunity to make lifelong friends.
“It was really fun,” sophomore Emily Cataldo said. “I went not really knowing anyone and now I feel like I made some new friends.”
