Experimental Psychology Brown Bag Series

At our weekly Brown Bag meeting, graduate students in Experimental Psychology get multiple opportunities to present their research in a relaxed environment. The weekly meetings are also used as a place to discuss professional development topics that are of interest to the students (e.g., How to Give Effective Presentations, Academic Writing, Tips on Getting Non-Academic Jobs, etc.).
