Nicole Seider, a graduating senior in Psychology, is the recipient of the 2015 Dashiell-Thurstone Prize.

The Dashiell-Thurstone Prize is awarded each year for the best senior honors thesis, as judged by a faculty committee. This award is named in memory of two significant figures in the life of the Department of Psychology: John Dashiell, who founded the Department in 1920, and Leon Thurstone, who founded the Psychometric Research Laboratory in 1953, which later became a significant component of the Department.

Nicole won for her outstanding senior honors thesis, titled “Differences in White Matter: Microstructure Integrity between Heavy and Light Drinkers.” This prize was presented at the 2015 Commencement Ceremony on May 10, 2015.
