Northwestern University Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP): Week 1

This past March, I was selected to participate in the Northwestern Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP). I arrived on campus on June 24. Our first two days were an orientation to campus life and to the expectations of the program. By the end of our seven weeks here, we will have created a poster and written a full paper.

There are 40 of us from all over the country spanning the many different disciplines, from humanities, to the social sciences, to the physical sciences, and more.

I am working the SCIP Lab, and I will be examining the connections between ostracism and adherence to stereotypes. I have been in the lab from 9-5 every day since Wednesday, doing training, becoming acquainted with lab protocol, and preparing myself to launch a study.

Northwestern is a beautiful campus, right on Lake Michigan! I’m excited to spend my summer here. More updates to come!
