A Social Media Detox: Mental Health Event

Join the Clinical Psychology graduate students as they host a 21-day social media detox challenge. Each week, they will meet in Prather Coliseum Parking Lot to play games for warming up with the possibility of winning a prize, share quick facts about the effect of social media on your mental health, and engage in a stress-relieving activity.  Our very own Neeru Deep has agreed to do yoga one week!  They will end with a challenge for that week (e.g., can’t access any social media for two hours after waking up).  The 21-Day challenge is to eliminate accessing all social media except one app for 21 days.

N-side view day

On February 29th, NSU hosted N-side view day for prospective juniors and seniors in high school.
The psychology department academic advisors “rocked” it and spoke to many students about our awesome department.

Welcome Back!

The Psychology department is excited to welcome everyone back for the Spring 2020 semester. Fork’em!

The Psychology department got festive for a cause this Halloween

The Psychology department got festive for a cause this Halloween. PSI CHI honor society sponsored a donation drive in which they encouraged students to donate food for the local food pantry with the incentive of faculty dressing up for Halloween if the goal of 600 goods was reached. As you can see their goal was met!
