Psychology students win, place, and show in COLFA conference

Psychology had a strong showing in the poster competition portion of this year’s COLFA research conference, with our students competing at the PhD, MS, and undergraduate levels.  We had a number of strong entries from each level, and several of our students walked away with awards and monetary prizes.  The list of psychology students placing “in the money” this year were:


Willie Hale, 1st place, graduate division (Faculty Sponsor: David Pillow)
     Ain’t nobody got time for that: Hypocrisy and message rejection

Trisha Hinojosa, 1st place, undergraduate division (Faculty Sponsor: David Pillow)
     Does self-monitoring facilitate or impeded authenticity?
