There were seventeen students in the program, so I interviewed each one and wrote separate pieces on each student and their topics. They can be found on the PC newsroom. Here is an example of what they are like if you didn’t check out the link to the newsroom:
Drew Brandel of Anderson, SC was one of seventeen Presbyterian College students selected to conduct research as a 2012 PC Summer Fellow. During his fellowship, Brandel will continue research about “Global Self-Worth and Academic Performance in CHAMPS Students.”
“I’m continuing my research from last summer to study the relationships among global self-worth, the academic self-concept, and academic achievement for the students involved with the CHAMPS program,” Brandel said.
After eight weeks of research, the psychology, history, and Spanish triple major will be able to compare data from last summer to his findings from this summer and hopefully find correlation.
“This research fits in really well with my academic interests because it allows me to gain experience working with adolescents while learning more about the research process from my peers and professors,” Brandel said.
Upon graduating this May, Brandel plans to pursue graduate studies in either school psychology or school counseling.
