"Will you not, as a loyal student of dear old Baylor, lay aside for a few days the usual cares of life, come back to your alma mater, renew former associations and friendships, and catch that Baylor spirit again?"
-Former Baylor University President Samuel Palmer
We invite you to rekindle those associations and friendships during Homecoming 2017, and we particularly invite you to visit us in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience.
A few words from the Chair
We invite you to our annual Homecoming Coffee (with Dr Pepper floats!) on Friday, October 20th, from 3:30 - 5 p.m. in the Roger E. Kirk Conference Room within the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, located in Room B309 in the Baylor Sciences Building. Please come say hello to your former professors, meet new faculty and staff, visit with your former classmates and tour the facilities.
For those of you who have been away for a few years, you will notice some changes. Dr. Joe Achor retired following the spring semester, 2016, after 38 years at Baylor and Dr. Michael Frisch retired in the Spring of 2017 after 35 years at Baylor. We are grateful to both for their service to the department and university. We are also saddened by the passing of Dr. David Kopplin, Emeritus Professor, in September of 2017.
We have also welcomed six new faculty to our Department in the past two years. Dr. Annie Ginty and Dr. Melanie Sekeres joined us in the Fall of 2016 as Assistant Professors. Dr. Stacy Ryan, Assistant Professor, Dr. Karenna Malavanti, Lecturer, Dr. Alisha Wray, Assistant Clinical Professor and Psychology Clinic Director, and Dr. Alex Beaujean, Associate Professor, joined us in the fall of 2017. We also welcomed Sarah Ochel in the Fall of 2016 as our Administrative Associate for Undergraduate Studies.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing what has been going on here, as well as hearing about what is going on in your lives. The faculty and staff in Psychology and Neuroscience welcome the opportunity to help you in any way possible. Please call me, Nancy Ulman, Laura Sumrall or Sarah Ochel at 254-710-2961 if we can be of service to you.
Warmest regards and safe travels,
Charles A. Weaver III, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology & Neuroscience
