Our Department in the News:


Naomi Thomas

It is with great sadness that we share the tragic news that our Psychology department staff member, Naomi Thomas, has passed away. For all of us in the Psychology Department family, this is a time of shock as well as grief. For most of you Naomi was the friendly, warm and smiling face of the office. She answered your questions, helped you solve problems with classes and registration, and always made you feel that you were her highest priority -- which you truly were!
