NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Successful in its first year, the second Lumberjack Psychology Conference will be held Monday, April 4, aimed at showcasing undergraduate and graduate research and preparing students for the upcoming Southwestern Psychology Association conference.

Three SFA students received awards from the Psi Chi National Honor Society following last year's SWPA conference in Kansas.

"The purpose of the Lumberjack Psychology Conference is two-fold," said Dr. Lauren Brewer, SFA assistant professor of psychology. "First, we want to share the impressive student and faculty research we've been doing with the SFA campus and community here in Nacogdoches. Second, this conference will help prepare our students to present at the SWPA in Dallas April 8 through 10."

Monday's conference will begin at 4 p.m. on the second floor of the McKibben Education Building with opening remarks from Dr. Kyle Conlon, assistant professor of psychology. A poster session will begin at 4:15 p.m. with talk/paper sessions beginning at 5:15 p.m. in Rooms 269 and 263.

The conference is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

"The Lumberjack Psychology Conference gives students an opportunity to hone their research presentation skills at SFA before presenting their research at this prestigious professional conference," Brewer said.

Fifty-six individual students and faculty members have had their research accepted for presentation at this year's SWPA conference. Those chosen from SFA will present 33 posters and seven talks/papers at the event.
