December 17th will be a very important day for the many, many human development and psychology students who will be receiving their degrees. Please know that the faculty looks forward to celebrating with you, and we hope to see you and your families at the ceremony. It is one of the days we most eagerly anticipate each year, as it is impossible not to feel the joy and sense of accomplishment that surrounds everyone. We hope you will keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Meanwhile, enjoy the day and take a moment to reflect upon the hard work and dedication you invested into making it possible. Congratulations, graduates!!
Some of you may have noticed this already but Psychology has a new website, complete with updated faculty profiles, current information on internships and other individualized learning opportunities, and much more. Take a look here if you haven’t already.
On a similar note, we have a new Facebook page for current psychology students and alumni. It’s a great spot for networking, sharing good news, and learning about what other students and the faculty are up to. If you are interested, it’s called UW-Green Bay Psychology Students and Alumni, and you can find it here.

Human Development and Psychology students are invited to apply for the Fergus and Bonnie Hughes Scholarship. A scholarship of $1250 for the 2011-12 academic year will be awarded to a HUM DEV or PSYCH major who best exemplifies interdisciplinary academic achievement both in and out of the classroom. Address your letter of application to Dr. Vespia and submit it by April 22, 2011, to email@example.com. The letter should describe your:
1. GPA [overall and in the major(s)],
2. interdisciplinary focus in work both in and outside of class,
3. service, volunteering, and extra-curricular achievements,
4. future plans, and
5. overall eligibility (i.e., Why do you think you are deserving of this scholarship?).
Again, applications should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 22, 2011.
Valentine’s Day may have passed, but we here at The Pink Flamingo believe in Valentine’s week. After all, why should relationships only be celebrated on one measly day? Besides, there’s lots of love in the air these days–for the victorious Green Bay Packers, for the (at least brief) return of above-freezing temperatures, for upcoming midterms…
Okay, so maybe we’re pushing it with that last one. However, what’s not to love about a relationship-themed issue of your favorite departmental newsletter? You’ll find all the news and a great Top Ten list below!

So…put those leftovers out of your mind and focus on those papers, assignments, and exams. Who needs those silly old turkeys anyway, when there is an infinitely better bird right in front of you? Your favorite bird – in the form of the latest issue of The Pink Flamingo, that is! Happy reading!

Welcome to our special Registration Issue of The Pink Flamingo. Read on for great information about a new class, new course formats, and much more! Know, too, that your advisors look forward to seeing you as you work to select classes for next semester. Most importantly, know that the Packers beat the Vikings in their most recent grudge match at Lambeau Field. We mention this while we still can because one of your editors is scared that won’t be the outcome once the game in Minnesota arrives in a couple of weeks, and another one of your editors is, of course, hoping the outcome will be different next time. In this tense political season of very negative ads, though, notice that we’ve managed to cross an even wider gulf than the one between Democrats and Republicans and work together in a bipartisan fashion yet again to produce a fun and informative newsletter!

Autumn is here! The leaves are falling, and we imagine you are keeping pretty busy with exams, papers, group projects, and more. Your co-editors are busy doing what they do best at this time of year – arguing over football. Yes, having a Packers’ fan and a Vikings’ fan as two of your co-editors is perhaps not the best idea, but the fact that they can work together effectively may be evidence that world peace is possible. Meanwhile, give poor Professor Burns, the non-football fan of the editorial team, your sympathies when you see her, and understand that that there’s no Top 10 list or other humorous item this month because we’re just too busy keeping an eye on those scores and injury reports. But…read on to learn about careers in Human Development and Psychology, P/HD and Psi Chi happenings, and much, much more.

Finding a great job can be about who, as well as what, you know. Learning how to “network,” or interact effectively with professionals, is a critical skill to master, and our friends at Career Services have a wonderful event planned for November 3rd to help you. Diane Roundy, who is the Director of Business Development at Schenck, will give a presentation (“Effectively Working the Room: The Top 10 Habits of Turning Introductions into Leads”), and then students will have the opportunity to practice networking skills in a safe environment with a local group of young professionals. You do need to RSVP by October 27th to attend this great event, as they need to have a sense of attendance numbers in advance. Click here to learn more, and be sure to RSVP in PRO!
We have a new administrative assistant team (AA Team, not to be confused with the A-Team movie/TV show). Twila has retired from full-time work after over 30 years of service to UW-Green Bay, but she is now working part-time for us. We’re also happy to welcome Kelly King as the other half of our AA Team. If you stop by MAC C310, you will be greeted by one of their smiling faces. Please join us in welcoming Kelly and congratulating Twila!
