Nate Priebe, a graduating senior in Psychology and Neuroscience, is the recipient of the 2021 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.

Nate, working with his mentor Dr. Beth Kurtz-Costes, won for his outstanding senior honors thesis, titled “The Effect of Mindfulness Programs on Collegiate Test Anxiety.” Congratulations, Nate!
