Psychology students present research at Stanford and Duke Universities
During the 2009–10 school year, a group of psychology students from Northwestern College in St. Paul conducted research on various facets of religiousness and spirituality and will present findings this spring at two prestigious universities—Stanford and Duke.

Research findings were presented at the Minnesota Undergraduate Psychology Conference at Macalester College in April. In the following weeks, students will travel to both Stanford and Duke for presentations:
