Today we are #OneWabash! If you aren’t already aware, Wabash is having another important day today and it would be great for you to join me in supporting the College.
Let’s show our strength as #OneWabash by making a gift today. With your help, Wabash will reach important benchmarks that will enable us to leverage $400,000 in lead challenge gifts. Our goal is to receive 3,419 gifts on 4.19. Doing so will have a lasting impact on our College.
In Psychology, the donations we received last year let us send two students, Nigel Dao ’18 and Carson Powell ’17, to San Diego in November to the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting. Both Nigel and Carson presented in a poster session, describing the results of their summer research projects (done with Dr. Schmitzer-Torbert and Dr. Gunther, respectively). This was a great experience for both students, who are interested in careers in medicine and neuroscience research, and it would not have been possible without your help!
Today, we are raising funds to support four more students who will be conducting research this summer: Kirby Cox ’18, Alexiz Arellano ’18, Niki Kazahaya ’18 and Neil Dittmann ’19. Each student has received a paid internship position, and will be supported by Wabash College. However, the students are planning research projects that will require additional funds to be successful: Kirby and Alexiz will travel with Dr. Olofson to Ohio this summer to work at the Ohio State University, while Niki and Neil will be working with Dr. Schmitzer-Torbert to test the relationship between mindfulness and memory in a large online sample. Funds raised today will cover travel expenses and participant reimbursement costs for these projects, which will be critical for these young men to complete their summer research. We think that this will be an excellent opportunity for our students, hope you will consider donating to the Special Psychology Fund today to support them and other Psychology students.
And, for every gift made to the Special Psychology Fund, the Psychology faculty will match $10 dollars up to $850! To support Wabash and our Psychology students, when making your gift at www.wabash.edu/419, simply select Psych from the drop‐down menu.
Join us as #OneWabash! Support Wabash students and encourage others to do the same!
Best wishes, and thank you again for your support,
