Psychology

Valentina said one of the things she loved about the Psychology Department was that her professors challenged her. Valentina is one of only eight students selected by the Southeastern Psychology Association conference organizers to give an oral presentation of her research at their annual meeting because of its high quality and ingenuity. Although the conference was cancelled, Valentina noted that "for every situation in life, even COVID-19, all we have to do is take that extra step to be amazing and eventually we will make it."

Valentina has been accepted into every graduate school in marketing (her minor) to which she applied. Her professors agree that any class Valentina was in, was a better place to be. She brightened up every class with her incredibly positive attitude, hard work, helpful questions and creative research. One professor said, “Every section of Senior Project should have a Valentina.”
