Students from OCC's chapter of PsiBeta gave two poster presentations at the school's annual Giles T. Brown Student Project and Research Symposium on April 13, earning a 2nd place award for their efforts.
PsiBeta is a national honor society for psychology students at community colleges. The two poster topics presented at the Symposium were titled "How Do Cultural Orientation and Social Media Use Relate to Social Relationships and Psychological Health" and "How do Self Esteem, Depression and Social Media Use Correlate with the Mental Health and Relationships of College Students." Each poster presentation was followed by a question and answer period, giving students a chance to explain their work.
OCC's Research Symposium gives students a chance to present the work they do inside and outside the classroom, highlighting many different disciplines on campus. In addition to a Poster Presentation session, students also were able to participate in an Exhibition of Work (suitable for creative works such as sculpture and machined products) and Oral (or Paper) Presentation, featuring a 15-minute oral presentation followed by 5 minutes of questions.
Congratulations to members of PsiBeta, and to all the winners!
