Recent Limestone University graduate and psychology major Hunter H. Moody presented a poster of his research titled “Paranormal Beliefs: Picture vs. Video Influences” during the 19th annual South Carolina Upstate Research Symposium held in March on the campus of USC Upstate in Spartanburg.

In addition, Limestone Psychology professors Dr. Justin Bailey and Dr. Michelle Phillips-Meek presented their research titled “Political Affiliation And Attitudes Toward COVID-19 On A College Campus.” The presentation was based on data the two professors collected from 467 Limestone students, staff, and faculty during the Fall 2020 semester.

“The study was an attempt to measure the different attitudes of concern or optimism about COVID-19 that Limestone students, staff, and faculty had upon returning to the classroom in September after months of isolation,” Bailey said.

The research study by Moody was one of several he conducted after enrolling at Limestone in 2019. He won the “Excellence in Psychology” award at Limestone’s recent Academic Awards Ceremony. Residing in Gray Court, SC, Moody was a member of the Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology and served as the president of Limestone’s Psychology Club.

Over 300 attendees took part in the symposium that provides a forum for students, researchers, professors, and community representatives to engage in a professional setting to share and interact with research from across the region.
