Dr. Helion, Julius, Joey, Teddi Jo, and Minkyung enjoying the lovely lobby at the Sheraton at the Association for Psychological Science conference in Chicago, May '08. This is one of the biggest conferences for psychology in the world! One of the highlights of this conference is that we saw famous psychologists sharing their research.
Joey and Julius presented a poster at the Association for Psychological Science conference. Their research examined the relationship between women's intentions to use condoms, their condom purchases, and their actual use of condoms over several weeks' time.

Dr. Helion, Kevin, Julius, Neil, Ashley, and Anna at the Midwestern Psychological Association conference in Chicago, May 2008. Two posters were presented, one on emotional reactions of women seeking medical care and the other about Asian women and body image. (note: we are missing Ashley E. on this picture because she was listening to other talks at the conference).

Ashley, Mallory, Dr. Stroot, and Nicole presenting a poster of their research at a psychology conference
Dr. Stroot and some psychology students did a research study looking at cheating behavior in college students. In the psychology department at Lakeland, there are opportunities to do research in psychology and maybe even present your results at a conference.
Dr. Helion and some of the Psychology Club members
Lakeland College Psychology club meets about once per month. We try to have a different topic each month. For example, this semester, Dr. Helion did a presentation on how to get into graduate school, including the time line and requirements and Dr. Stroot presented information about what careers you can get with a psychology degree and what type of graduate school options you have after graduation at Lakeland. We announce volunteer opportunities and other psychology-related events at these meetings and we also try to always have food!

The psychology professors think that getting out into the community is a very important aspect of being a psychology student. Last semester, we went to Milwaukee for a full day of activities. Students had the opportunity to watch Dr. Helion as a guest speaker on a health radio show talking about her research. Then multiple internship sites were visited and students had informal interviews with each site. The day ended with a visit to two different psychology graduate programs including a visit to a psychology professor's research lab meeting.

As a student at Lakeland, you will be close to some interesting places that you can visit in your free time.
Lakeland College is near Sheboygan, a town of about 55,000 people. There are beaches, restaurants, music, and shopping. Even if you don't have a car, you can visit Sheboygan by taking the shuttle from Lakeland.
