SNU Psychology Students Place First at Research Competition

SNU Psychology students Cesiley French (sophomore), Stephanie Lee (junior), and Janna Colaizzi (junior) placed first place today in the undergraduate research competition at the 2008 Annual Conference of the Southwestern Psychological Association. Out of all submissions, five were selected to compete during the conference this week by submitting a research paper and giving an oral presentation.

The research paper was entitled "Locus of Control, Hope, and Anxiety in College Undergraduates Throughout a Semester." Additional information on this research can be requested by contacting Cesiley French at

This presentation will also be presented at the Oklahoma Psychological Society Conference and has been submitted to the SNU Research Symposium as well for consideration.

The research was supported and funded by the Ladd Fund, for which psychology students are always very grateful.
