While earning his Psychology degree at Touro’s Lander College of Arts & Sciences (LAS), Shloime Fellig, Miami native and current Brooklyn resident, founded Outgrow.me, which provides a unique platform to sell creations originally endorsed by Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and Rockethub. As a result, Outgrow.me is one of the only Web destinations to find, for example, Inna Jam’s spicy Fresno Chili or the revolutionary Ouya free-to-play game console. In essence, Outgrow.me both capitalizes on the growing crowdfunding approach to design and manufacture and offers exciting goods and services that even Amazon doesn’t stock.

Assistant Professor of Languages and Literature Yehoshua November is a fascinating guy. There’s just no way around it. As a kid, he and his family bounced around virtually every corner of the country (“I don’t know why we moved around so much,” he says). His father, an obstetrician, was always in search of a Jewish community where he could raise a family and ply his trade.

To paraphrase a well-worn cliché, there’s more than one way to test a scientific hypothesis. Researchers can spend endless hours in what Columbia University Clinical Psychiatry Assistant Professor Dvora Sanders refers to as “wet lab” experiments. Or, in laymen’s terms, the scenario most of us picture when thinking about clinical trials: people in white coats implementing fancy equipment and conducting a trial-and-error process with myriad variables. Conversely, there’s Sanders’ preferred execution of data analysis, which she describes as a more “straightforward” way to arrive at hopefully similar conclusions.

Living in contemporary society carries with it the burden of reconciling one’s inherited history and tradition with surging advances in how we communicate. It’s a modern, kinetic world with myriad of ancient beliefs and customs. That dichotomy can be a hard thing for a person of faith to balance in their daily life, and members of the Orthodox Jewish community are no exception. Gabriel Hoffnung, a graduate of Touro’s Lander School of Arts & Sciences’ psychology program (and current Yeshiva University Ferkauf student), believes that guidance from therapeutic counseling helps patients live a practical life, as well as one that’s spiritually fulfilling.

When you know, you know. It’s a sentiment that can apply to life, work, family and career. For LAS psychology major alumnus Sari Herzog—who’s simultaneously preparing for a wedding and looking at grad schools to earn her Ph.D.—all possible interpretations no doubt apply. But her academic path in particular has been a lifelong affair.

Philosophically, root-generating plant stems known as rhizomes are metaphors for how thought and action can spring from unlikely sources and seamlessly intertwine. In that sense, Dr. Chaim Neuhoff’s work as a clinical psychologist and community leader could be described as fundamentally rhizomatic.

To some extent, trying to figure out how the human body works can feel like we’re chasing our own tail. How can we possibly master the inner workings and outer survival of a vessel that was magnificently created? This is partly what drives aspiring physicians like Yakov Glicksman in their studies. The recent Lander School of Arts & Sciences Biology valedictorian and current New York Medical College (NYMC) student has been drawn to better understanding anatomy since childhood, and is fast en route to an occupation in the field.

One of the foremost questions college applicants ask themselves is, “Where is my education going to lead 10 years down the line?” The answer, of course, is largely up to the student and how much effort they put in during and after academia. But if 2002 Lander Arts and Sciences (LAS) grad and Psychology major Dr. Steven Zimmerman is looked to as an example, the ceiling is sky-high.

People helping people helping people: It may as well be Perella Perlstein’s mantra. After all, it’s implicitly guided her studies and career up to this point. The 2006 Lander College of Arts & Sciences (LAS) Psychology grad and current Adjunct Professor in Psychology at Touro—she also acquired a Masters in School Psychology and Doctor of Psychology in between—has been pursuing a greater knowledge of how anxious and personality disorders develop and get successfully treated. She’s also long yearned to work in academia, molding like-minded future peers’ sophistication about our scientific minds.
