Psychology Welcome Event Wednesday, September 6; 2:30-4 pm
Tolman Hall Breezeway

Join the Psychology community in the Tolman Hall Breezeway on Wednesday September 6 from 2-4 pm.  Have a bite to eat and connect with your colleagues. Learn about student groups in Psychology and meet the facilitators for some of the DeCal classes offered through the department. Faculty will also be joining the party early in the afternoon, so this is a great chance to get to know them as well. Please RSVP online here so we can be sure to have enough refreshments for everybody. Folks who RSVP online in advance of the event will get a bonus raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes.
