FEBRUARY STUDENT OF THE MONTH:
Sarah Ashley Harvey
"For a CMST class, she wrote her final literature review on Expectancy Violations and Parasocial Relationships. It was an excellent paper that helped her earn an "A" in the class. This Fall, Ashley approached me to work with her, outside of any other class requirement, to help her develop the paper into a study. She has been working on this paper this Fall, and recently had it accepted to the College Symposium. I think she is an outstanding student not only because of the high quality work she does in the classroom, but also because she has gone above and beyond to take on developing her own research study outside of any course requirement. I think that's pretty impressive."
