The student representatives (a.k.a. psych reps) are a group of psychology students that organize and run various events related to the Department of Psychological Science. These events include the Grad in Residence program, the Fall Picnic, Senior Happy Hour, and the Topher Bill Auction, among others.
Additionally, the psych reps hold major meetings, attend faculty meetings to keep the professors informed about what’s going on with the students, and get information from professors to answer student questions. They organize student lunches to meet with people who are being interviewed at the school to become possible professors. Plus, they give valuable input from the student body to the psychology staff on topics such as who to hire for an upcoming year and what classes to offer.
Students have to run to be elected as psych reps by posting their information on the rep board towards the end of the spring semester. There are always four reps, and they are elected by the Psych majors.
Fall 2020/Spring 2021 Psych Reps
Hello! My name is Nichole Boigegrain. I am a senior psychology major with a business administration minor. This is my second year being a psych rep and I absolutely love all that the position brings me. I am also a part of Psi Chi, Alpha Mu, the Swim Club, Phi Beta Kappa, and our university’s honor society. I am also a RA for Eagle Landing and love walking around campus! Hopefully I will run into all of you sometime this semester on campus walk (socially distanced of course)!
Hi! I’m Amelia, a senior here at Mary Wash and I’m majoring in psychology with a minor in neuroscience. My pronouns are she/her/hers, I am from Harrisonburg, VA, and I play on the women’s ultimate frisbee team! I am also a member of Best Buddies and a Peer Mentor. In my free time, I enjoy running, watching Netflix, or doing crafts!
Hi everyone! My name is Elizabeth Jones, and I am a junior majoring in psych (kinda obviously) and minoring in business. I am so excited to be one of your Psych Reps for the year! I am from Sterling, Virginia, but I currently live off-campus right here in Fredericksburg. Some of my favorite hobbies include exercising, baking, and spending time outside. My favorite holiday is Halloween and fall is my absolute favorite season. I also work in the Center for Career and Professional Development on campus, so if you ever need a resume looked at or any help in that field, don’t hesitate to ask! I look forward to having a great (even though unconventional) year with you all!
