Tri-State Undergraduate Psychology Conference

The Tri-State Undergraduate Psychology Conference is an annual conference for undergraduate psychology majors, where students can see and present their own research. Each year, the conference is held at a different host school. Member schools of the conference include Alderson-Brauddus College, Baldwin-Wallace University, Concord University, Marietta College, Marshall University, University of Charleston, West Liberty University, and West Virginia University. The conference includes a keynote speaker, student oral presentations, and poster sessions. Additionally, this is the site of the annual Psychology Jeopardy Tournament. Registration is free, and transportation is provided by the Department of Psychology.

All Scholars Day Conference

All Scholars Day is a campus-wide recognition of students and their work, for students to gain experience presenting as well as to engender academics. Throughout the day, presenters share senior capstones, independent study research, honors and investigative studies projects, internship and study abroad experiences, as well as creative pieces. Students from the Department of Psychology are always represented well at this event, which acts as a culmination for some of our research and coursework.

Eastern Psychological Association Conference

Each spring, faculty and students from the Department of Psychology attend a regional conference together (typically the Eastern Psychological Association Conference). Students have the opportunity to submit abstracts for presentations at this conference, and may qualify for funding from the college for the trip, which is typically across several days. Recent conference trips have been to Nashville, New York City, Boston, and Pittsburgh. Registration for this conference varies.
