Hello Everyone! My name is Stephanie Michel and I am currently a junior, soon to be senior student here at Albright College! I am a Psychology Major, so I have spent most of my time here at Albright in Teel Hall! I am a commuter student from Berks County, PA. I currently serve as President of the Commuter Student Association, Secretary of the Lion Diplomats, SGA Representative for Caribbean Culture Club, Member of Psi Chi, the Psychology International Honors Society, and am an Honors student. I have been fortunate to experience remarkable interdisciplinary courses here at Albright such as Dr. Forte's Yoga: Philosophy and Practice, Dr. Hearon's Health Psychology, Dr. Couchman's Cross-Cultural Psychology, and Drs. Langran and Heller's Global Health. These courses got my brain whirling about figuring out how to apply this newfound knowledge I had, which brought me to the ACRE program! This summer I will be collaborating with Dr. Hearon, one of the awesome Professors in the Psychology Department, to complete an ACRE. We will be studying the Effects Meditation on Perceptions of Attractiveness in Women, stay tuned!

Hello blog readers! My name is True Kessler and I'm a junior and an English/French co-major at our lovely college. For the past semester, I have served as the president of Albright's chapter of the international English honors society, Sigma Tau Delta. I have also recently been inducted into the national French honors society, Pi Delta Phi. When it comes to hobbies, I am a world class dabbler. Among other things, I love to read (duh, check the major), garden (owning a potted cactus totally counts as gardening), paint (poorly), crochet (So what if I only know how to make scarves?), cook (passably), play tennis (Do I even need to say that I do that poorly too?) and watch movies (original, I know). I'm a bit of a worrier and what better place to be worried than in a beautiful foreign country?! This summer, I will be studying in Grenoble, France for six weeks. I'm excited/terrified and I'm glad you all will be taking this journey with me!
