“The greatest learning experience I’ve had at Whitworth has definitely been my senior practicum. As a psychology major you have to complete 100 hours at a practicum site of your choosing, and I was able to do mine at Excelsior Youth Center. I couldn’t have obtained the experience I gained at Excelsior from anywhere but in the field. It was amazing to be able to jump in and really explore in a setting like Excelsior. Working there has shown me how real the outside world is and has shown me the struggles that at risk youth deal with on a daily basis.
