Alumni to Know
Erin Cimino ’16 Alum
Psychology undergraduates gain a deep understanding in the social sciences. ’16 Alumna Erin Cimino, MS, LPC, remembers feeling supported academically and personally by her many mentors at UWSP. She had a wide range of experiential learning, interning in a school setting, at a health care center, working with older adults and with college-age peers on campus. “It helped me grow into the person I am today. They modeled every day how to be accepting and open-minded, supportive of people,” she said.
