Most Influential Professor: Dr. Beery and my sister Amanda have kept in touch since her graduation, so I knew she was a professor I wanted to connect with when I got to campus. She has a genuine interest in getting to know her students and that doesn’t stop when you graduate.
Favorite Part of Class: I enjoy the fact that classes aren’t all lectures – they have more of a hands-on approach. In the first psychology class I had, Dr. Beery brought in candy and bells to use to demonstrate Pavlov’s Classical Conditioning Theory. experiment to our class.
Getting Involved: I’ve been cheerleading for years, so I knew I wanted to cheer at Lycoming. It’s a wonderful break from studying! Cheerleading is the perfect addition to any major, especially if you are interested in coaching someday.
Advice: If you have even the slightest interest in psychology and/or education, take a psychology and education class your first year here – you’ll see how these two subjects work together to create the perfect combination.
