The Conference

Thursday was the first day of the conference and we all went our separate ways, with some presenting and others going off to different subject talks. Rebecca and I stuck together, being fellow psychology geeks. We heard some really interesting talks, had the opportunity to see how undergraduate research is done in the U.S and the chance to talk to other students with similar research interests. It was fantastic! (in a really lame geeky way, lol).

At the first plenary session of the conference we heard the governor of Montana speak, who was accompanied on stage by his dog!!!!

(However, I wasn't quick enough with the camera to catch the dog, before it hid behind the podium *sigh*)

Then the Mayor of Missoula spoke, he was hilarious!!! Possibly the best speech of the conference.

On the whole it was a very academic day.

So obviously we finished it with a trip to Hooters!!! ;)
