|Kimberly's activities: Chi Omega Gamma
Post-grad plans: Attend Colorado State University for the cognitive psychology Ph.D. program
Are you where you thought you’d be four years ago?
Not at all…I entered Augustana as a pre-vet major, but once I got going with classes, I loved psychology and stuck with it.
Your peak experience?
I completed a year-long research project which I will be presenting at the Association for Psychological Science conference in Washington, D.C., this May.
What did you learn about yourself in these past four years
that surprised you?
I learned how to be independent and self-motivated, a big difference from the procrastinator I was in high school.
Who helped you get to where you are now?
The whole psychology department has been fantastic, but Dr. Corts especially helped to get me interested in research, and now I actually know what I want to do after graduation!
Advice for this fall's incoming class?
Come in with an open mind, and if you feel like changing your major, go with it! Also, be sure to get to know your faculty well to make the most of your time.
