Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
The Impact of Gratitude on Mindfulness in College Students:A Mixed Method Analysis
By Brooke Shimer
Brooke Shimer is a senior psychology major who completed this research in fulfillment of the requirements for the psychology departmental honors program and the University Honors College. She became interested in the topics of gratitude and mindfulness after interning at Mental Health America of Lancaster in the summer of 2019. The topic resonates with her because she has kept her own daily gratitude journal since 2018 and it changed her life for the better. Excitingly, her research has been accepted for presentation at the 2021 Eastern Psychological Association annual meeting. Upon graduation, Brooke plans to continue her education in the Clinical Psychology program here at Millersville.
