Welcome to the March Edition of The Pink Flamingo!

We debated about whether to release our March issue at this time. After all, how are we to compete with all the other news out there? There’s the presidential primaries, almost breaking annual snowfall records, our rapidly approaching Spring Break,  and, oh yeah…that small story about #4 retiring. Ultimately, though, we decided the best way not only to keep you going until Spring Break, but also to approach this period of mourning for the end of an era in Titletown, was to try to lift your spirits with our always uplifting, inspiring, informative, page-turning, not-to-be-missed…er…newsletter.

Breaking News: Human Development and Psychology Hire Another New Professor!

The Human Development and Psychology Departments are thrilled to announce that Deirdre Radosevich (soon-to-be Dr. Radosevich) will be joining us in the fall as a new faculty member.  She will graduate with a Ph.D. in Child Clinical Psychology from St. John’s University after completing her internship at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York later this year.  Her research interests include evaluating the effectiveness of specific aspects of the therapy process. She is expected to teach Tests and Measurement and Theories of Personality in the fall and ultimately other courses related to clinical psychology.

Careers of the Month: March 2008 Edition

Another month arrives – and with it comes two more great careers to consider with your Human Development or Psychology major.

Volunteer Coordinator: Interested in the non-profit world? Counseling not for you, but think you might be great at bringing together volunteers to work at or raise funds for your local food pantry or crisis center? Maybe you’re a future Volunteer Coordinator!  http://www.occupationalinfo.org/18/187167022.html

Police Officer: Contemplating a career in law enforcement? A college degree is a great place to start! Keep in mind that courses related to criminal justice and other relevant areas may be helpful, and that you will need specific law enforcement training after your college graduation.  http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos160.htm
