 While most seniors in college are still struggling with their thesis and looking forward to all the senior week activities and graduation, psychology major students are the group who people are jealous of because we are always the one’s who starts our own celebration first.

 While most seniors in college are still struggling with their thesis and looking forward to all the senior week activities and graduation, psychology major students are the group who people are jealous of because we are always the one who starts our own celebration first.  Every year, psychology department would hold a wine tasting event for seniors a month before the graduation. The interesting part of the wine tasting night is, not only you get to taste different red and white wines that brought from the faculties, enjoy the cheese and food throughout the night, but also you get a chance to win free bottles of wine at the end of the night. Every faculty from the psychology department would pick a bottle of wine they like but the students would not know who bring what wine. The rule of the game is that the students would get a paper which include the description of each wine which includes the taste of the wine and why that person like it. After tasting, students need to match the wine with the faculties. The person who guesses the most right would get to take the free bottles of wine home.  it was a really fun night. Professors got to share their life and interests with the senior students. The competition was intense and students communicated a lot about their own ideas of each professor’s taste like. Apparently, I wasn’t able to capture the winner of the night, since she is busing taking photos the whole time!

The rule of the tasting is that the students would get a paper which included the description of each wine, which includes the taste of the wine and why that person likes it. After tasting, students need to match the wine with the correct faculty member. The person who guesses the most right would get to take the free bottles of wine home.
