UGA's Griffin Campus Presents: Psych Day

Mar 09, 2015 04:00PM, Published by Jake Gentry, Categories: Lifestyle, Community




The University of Georgia’s Griffin Campus will be hosting its annual “Psych Day at UGA” event on March 20, and it’s going to be a mind-opening meet-up of speakers from across Georgia that’s not to be missed.

The event begins at 8 AM in UGA Griffin’s Student Learning Center, and continues until 4:30 PM, with a one-hour lunch break in between. The theme of the event is “Everyday Psychology: Food, Money, Politics—and Drugs in the Afternoon,” and the line up includes seminars and speeches ranging from “The Psychology of Food Safety: Making Bad Habits Good,” to “Gambling: Decision Making, Personality and Their Roles in Problem Gambling,” along with many other provocative presentations.

The best part? Members of the general public will get into the event absolutely FREE. You can choose to attend the morning session, the afternoon session, or the full day of talks. Georgia Psychological Association continuing education credit is also being offered for $99.00 to students and psychology professionals who attend the full day. To join in on what’s sure to be a stimulating event packed with incredible speakers all you need to do is register to attend and you’re set for a day spent learning about the hottest topics in psychology.

It’s a phenomenal opportunity for both professionals in psychology and prospective students interested in visiting the UGA campus in Griffin.
