What is the Psych News Blog?

We envision a space where students can write short blurbs about anything in the realm of psychology. Perhaps a new study has been published with exciting results that you’d like to summarize in a paragraph. Or maybe you have discovered something interesting in your own research. The blog will also likely share information about events and deadlines pertinent to the Psychology Collective and the Psychology department. You can help decide!
