Student StorySam Martinez '17
"The Department of Psychology was a reason that I felt confident making large decisions or facing challenges. The Queens faculty truly understands the meaning of a small campus professor-student relationship. When I started applying to graduate school, my professors would sit and work with me through the applications."
