Big Bash Reception – 2013

Last month, the department welcomed back our psychology alums for Big Bash, in a reception held in the Bankart Lounge, in Baxter Hall. This was the third year that the Department has hosted a reception for alumni who majored in Psychology at Wabash, and the event was a great success.

About ten psychology alumni were present, whose graduation years spanned from 1960 to 2003.  We enjoyed the chance to hear how our alums’ careers have developed since their time at Wabash, and to hear some of their Wabash stories.

From the faculty, Karen Gunther, Eric Olofson, Bobby Horton, Terri Aubele and Neil Schmitzer-Torbert were able to attend.  We were also joined by Brad Wise (’14), a rising senior who is working on a summer research internship with Dr. Aubele on the effects of nitric oxide on sexual behavior in female rats.

Were you at Big Bash this year, but didn’t make it to the Psychology reception? Feel free to used the comments section below to tell us about your favorite Psychology at Wabash stories, and what you are doing now with your Wabash degree!
