Oglethorpe Psychology Students Present Original Research at Southeastern Psychological Association

psychforweb3Once again, Oglethorpe Psychology students have achieved a 100% acceptance rate at a professional conference! This march, five Oglethorpe students presented original research in psychology at the 59th annual meeting of the Southeastern Psychological Association in Atlanta, GA. This is a very prestigious accomplishment for undergraduates, as the majority of conference presenters and attendees are faculty and graduate students. Particularly impressive was that two of the five students received particular recognition for their outstanding submission. Jahnavi Delmonico (‘12) was selected to give a talk on her research entitled “Effects of Phonetic Symbolism on the Perception of Foreign Languages” and Julia Fukuda (’13) presented a poster entitled “Reading Fluency and Academic Performance” as part of a special session for highly rated posters.


In addition, three students had poster presentations accepted: • Kendall Burke (’13): “Holistic Facial Processing Drives OwnGender Bias in Women” • Jeremy McCoy (’12) “Testing the 10-12 Second Rule in Sequential Lineups and Cross-Race Eyewitness Identification” • Jazmin Eaves (’13): “Whose Name is it Anyway? Factors that Predict Name Recall” The students enjoyed attending a variety of sessions and learning about current research in psychology!
