Hi everyone! I’m Nicole Altenberg and I am super excited to be a Lab Aide for the Psychology Department! I am a senior Psychology and Women and Gender Studies major from Mount Laurel, NJ! On-campus, I am also the President of the Performing Arts Company, the Psi Chi Social Media Chair, and a Student Alumni Ambassador. After UMW, I hope to attend graduate school to pursue a degree in clinical psychology and I am super interested in dance therapy!


Hi everyone! My name is Armon Barnes and I am a senior at Mary Wash. I am very excited to be a Psych Rep! I hope that when I graduate from Mary Wash I will be able to go to graduate school and pursue a masters degree and then a PhD. I really enjoy playing sports on campus like basketball and volleyball, and I am also involved with the James Farmer Multicultural Center as a student worker and Student Coordinator for the Farmer Fellows Diversity Peer Educator Program. I will also be a student lab aide this year for the psychology department so if you ever have any questions about the department, feel free to ask me! You can also email me at I wish you all a great and successful year and I hope to meet and get to know some of you as well!
