Following tradition, Psychfest is an annual event during which second-year Master’s students, as well as new PhD students, present their research to the entire department. It’s the only opportunity for students to share their work with everyone in the Psychology department, so it’s a rare and exciting occasion for each student.
Psychfest 2019 is being held on Friday, May 3 from 10:45am – 4:30pm in West Mall Swing Space Building, Room 121.
This year’s theme is Psychapalooza: One day of Peace, Love, and Psychology.
Dress in your Woodstock best and prepare yourselves for a groovy and psychedelic time. Presenters and attendees are encouraged to dress up as if they were going Woodstock (circa 20 years before you were born). Don’t forget your flower crown, your tie dye shirt, and/or your bell bottom jeans.
Stay tuned for the program!
