1. Interesting classes- Although Psychology 101 (Intro to Psychology) teaches you the general concepts in psychology, the specialized psychology courses at PLU take you through concepts from different perspectives. For example, I took Cultural Psychology last year, which taught me the cultural differences in the ways people think and behave. Currently, I'm taking Psychology of Women, which is mainly discussion based and goes over the psychological differences with women.
2. Contributing to real-life research- In my stats class, we are working on a survey project where we collect surveys from participants and write a research paper. What's cool about this project you ask? We have three projects that we can choose from, and two of these projects contribute to real-life research. So we not only get to do this for class, but we are also contributing to real-life research by being
part of great opportunities like this!

4. The psychology building- A lot of the psychology classes happen at Xavier. What I love about the building is the big classroom. It looks like something that would be in in Harry Potter!
