Dan O'Connell, student spotlight

Dan O'Connell, psychology major at SLU, is a 2022 Student Spotlight.

Over summer break, Dan took part in scholarly research with SLU professors investigating the impact and major risks stress has on college students. When not doing research, Dan has also helped set up town hall events, making sure student voices are heard and communicating them with SLU’s administration. He has a major focus on changing SLU for the better, especially when it comes to mental health.
 
During his years at SLU, Dan has been involved with student government and has made countless connections with students, connections he says he highly values. After graduation, Dan is considering the possibilities of pursuing a Ph.D. in clinical psychology or teaching English in Columbia through the Fulbright Program. He has done some great work during his time here!
