May 6, 2013:

On April 30, 2013 the seniors majoring in Psychology presented their theses to the Menlo community, marking the end of the year and the upcoming commencement. The presentations were the result of months of hard work and covered topics from childhood education to understanding dual diagnosis and drug policies.

“Finishing my thesis has definitely been my biggest accomplishment at college thus far,” said Katie McClain, who presented her research paper on the long-term effects on children who have successfully battled cancer. “The amount of support our psychology class received was incredible, which says a lot about the Menlo community.”

 “What I was most impressed by this year was something I didn’t expect, which was the amount of laughter from the audience,” Mark J. Hager, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology at Menlo. “It showed that the students were comfortable and knew their material and were able to engage the audience. They did an excellent job and we’re all really proud of them.”
