I learned methods to better manage my stress, and improve my studying habits. All in all, it was a magical experience that I wish lasted longer.
Every day we discussed different fields in psychology. We learned a lot about one another and had fun discussions. Overall, this camp helped me discover some fields I am interested in and clarified to me that studying psychology is a path I would like to take.
This week I learned a lot about the aspects of psychology. I met great people and professors, and I had a wonderful time.
Throughout the week, I learned and grew from people's different experiences and perspectives. Overall, I believe Psychology Camp was an inspiration which planted a seed for my interest in psychology.
