Gregory Privitera, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at St. Bonaventure University, will deliver the keynote presentation at the Penn-York Undergraduate Research Conference titled “Grades aren’t everything: Steps and Insights for Getting into Graduate School.”
The Penn-York Undergraduate Research Association Conference will be hosted by Houghton College from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1.
Based on his book, “Getting Into Graduate School: A Comprehensive Guide for Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences,” Privitera will elaborate on what makes the best students so competitive for graduate schools and what students can do to stand among the best.
The conference will also feature presentations by three St. Bonaventure psychology majors: senior Caitlin Brown, a poster presentation on “Emolabeling as a Strategy to Effectively Reduce the Influence of Misleading Labeling on Nutrition Labels”; and junior Kayla Cuifolo and sophomore Quentin King-Shepherd, a poster presentation called “Wait, bring it back! Short- and longer-term effects of using foods and food images to enhance positive mood.”
More than 80 students will be giving brief presentations of their research on behavioral and social sciences, biological, computational and physical sciences, health-related and applied sciences and humanities.
