  •  Student Spotlight: Happy to Study Happiness

    Thursday, Jun. 12, 2014
    Communication majors celebrate the completion of their Senior Thesis course entitled The Science of Happiness (COMM 197) with Professor Sunwolf. The class blew bubbles in the atrium of the Arts & Sciences Building, a symbolic culmination of all the research they synthesized about happiness (getting it, losing it, keeping it). Congratulations to Blair Boone, Sabrina Brutocao, Brittany Calvo, Jaclyn Cardosa, Sylvana Dalsgaard, Paula Gonzalez, Sarah Jackson, Laura Jalalian, Alexandra Johnston, Ashley Pinnell, Jeffrey Ramos, Sasha Sommer, Caroline Stouffer, Megan Swindells, and Veronica Yu.
  •  Faculty Feats: SunWolf

    Monday, May. 13, 2013

    Twitter may limit posts to 140 characters, but Communication Professor SunWolf sees it as another way to convey insightful thoughts about a wide variety of complex topics. “For me, Twitter's appeal includes a writer's needful tool — succinctness and clarity of thought that grabs attention,” she said. “It allows me to regularly talk with scientists and poets, for example, in India, Australia, South America, and Great Britain,” she said.

    SunWolf created three Twitter accounts four years ago. One is for lawyers, featuring tweets about jury cases, strategies, laws, and verdicts. Another is literary and includes bits of haiku poetry, whimsy, and observations about life. @TheSocialBrain, which has more than 14,000 followers around the world, is about social behavior. It has gained so much attention from some top scientists and universities that last year the Huffington Post named SunWolf one of 30 national high-profile scientists who tweet on neuroscience.

    “My Twitter accounts allow me to talk with other scholars but also with ordinary folks on the street, who are interested in the scholarship I create, from poetry to law to human behavior,” she said.
