Sensoria 2015 "World Experience" Event

Sensoria 2015 hosted over 250 students, faculty and visitors to the World Experience event on April 17, 2015, in the Overcash Lobby at the Central Campus. The event focused on four regions of the world:  Africa, Mexico, the Middle East and Russia. World Experience challenges student participants to take their learning experience outside of the classroom and engage psychology and history on a global scale. This year’s students offered visitors a wide range of project presentations that included:  issues surrounding human rights in Africa and the Middle East; energy and related issues between Russia and the European Union; science and technological advances in Africa; religious practices both ancient and modern in all regions; and, a primary source interview and look into the crime and police brutality in Mexico. Visitors also enjoyed food and dance from Mexico and sweet treats from Turkey and the Middle East. Kathryn Wells and Mahbubeh Yektaparast received awards for long-standing service to Sensoria for organizing and promoting the World Experience event. This is the 5th year for the World Experience event and it is a proven success for student learning.

Published: 03/17/2011

Psychology instructor and CPCC award-winning mystery author Rick Helms (Levine Campus) has received Short Mystery Fiction Society Derringer Award finalist nominations in two categories. The nominations, announced March 1, came in the Long Fiction (4,001-8,000 words) category, for his story "Silicon Kings" (Back Alley Webzine, April 2010); and in the Novelette (8,001-17,500 words) category for "The Gods for Vengeance Cry" (Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, November 2010). This is the second time Helms has received two nominations for the Derringers in the same year. He previously did so in 2008, when he also won both. The winners of the Derringer Awards for 2011, based on voting by the 1,300 members of the Short Mystery Fiction Society, will be announced on April 1.

Helms' 14th novel, "Thunder Moon," comes out June 15 from Five Star/Cengage.
