Cydney Rogers at the National Conference on Undergraduate ResearchCydney Rogers RSC ’18 presented her study, looking at the connection between people’s feelings toward their pets and their views on animal-based entertainment, at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research at the University of Central Oklahoma, April 4-7, 2018.

Her project began as Honors Research, an opportunity for senior Psychology majors to conduct research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Rogers worked with Donald F. Graves, Ph.D.

“NCUR will give me real-life experience presenting research, networking and socializing in a professional setting. I will also attend pre-conference workshops, view other presentations, and go on educational excursions in the evenings. Presenting at NCUR is a great honor that I hope will help me with future career prospects,” said Rogers, who has enjoyed working with children and adolescents as a summer camp counselor, and intends to pursue a doctorate in Counseling Psychology.
