Curry College senior psychology majors Heather Flaherty and Chelsie Young accompanied department chair/professor, Dr. Bruce Steinberg to the New England Psychological Association (NEPA) Conference at Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, Connecticut in the fall of 2013. The students were invited to present the results of research they had conducted in Steinberg's Advanced Research Seminar.
Dr. Benjamin Hidalgo's classes are conducted, as he puts it, "far from the traditional 'passive' way of learning," i.e. study, show up for class, answer some questions on an exam, etc. They are more casual, where he encourages conversation and does not shy from debate.
Twenty-three year old police officer Greg Gough '11 certainly took advantage of his time at Curry. He played lacrosse while balancing his internships and Criminal Justice coursework. He also minored in Psychology - an area of study that still helps Gough on the job today.
