Psychology jeopardy team

For the sixth time in 11 years, Marietta College’s Psychology Department won the Psychology Jeopardy competition at the Tri-State Undergraduate Psychology Research Conference at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, in April.

Marietta’s winning team, which was coached by Professor Mark Sibicky, was made up of Austin Burns ’16 (Stockport, Ohio), Megan Hendrich ’17 (Ravenna, Ohio), Micayla Hupp ’17 (Lowell, Ohio), Emily Mason ’17 (Logan, Ohio), Elizabeth Maynard ’18 (Columbus, Ohio) and Brooke Stanley ’17 (Parkersburg, West Virginia). The Pioneers defeated competitors from Concord University, Marshall University, University of Charleston, West Virginia University and West Liberty State University.

Each team answers psychology related questions — Jeopardy style — over two rounds and final “Jeopardy” question.

Marietta’s Psychology students also attended the 23rd annual Tri-State meeting.

“The conference highlights undergraduate research and consists of research poster presentations, oral presentations and an invited guest speaker,” Sibicky said.

Presenting research posters for Marietta was Latrice Nelson ’18 (Austintown, Ohio), Burns, Hendrich, Hupp, Maynard and Stanley.

Marietta College offers a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Psychology.
