Learn a Bit, Eat a Bit Series

Hello Psi Chi,

I am glad to now be introducing our new "Learn a bit, Eat a bit" series.

This is a way for students to get to know their professors more intimately than they can in a classroom setting.

Don't be scared. I know psychology professors can be intimidating, but when they are in a smaller setting, talking about the things that really interest them, they're not so bad.

Dr. Grossi will be our first lecturer, and she will be speaking about her research on bilingualism.

This talk is open for Subject Pool credit. 20 seats are available, so if you are interested be sure to hurry and sign up!

Time and Location: Wednesday, February 10, 2010. 5:30PM - 6:30PM. SUB 416

Directions: Go to the fourth floor, exit the elevators turn right and follow hallway to the corner room. Please sign the attendance sheets at the end of this event to receive credits.

Refreshments will be served!

More updates to come soon
