Hello, I'm Emily, and I'm a fourth-year undergraduate student studying Business Management and Psychology here at UWEC. I'm super excited to be a resource in the psychology department this year, so stop in and say hi! My favorite psych class so far has been research methods with April Bleske-Rechek... if you get a chance to have class with her, I'd recommend it!
