Nightline producers began filming on campus in the spring and have followed members of Dr. Kevin Meyer’s Abnormal Psychology class as they participated in a “Face Your Fears” project. Through the project, students with a professed fear of roller coasters learned and applied techniques to battle anxiety and tackled their most feared rides at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio in October.
For the past six years, Meyer, associate professor of psychology, has led a group of students on a trip to Cedar Point where they put the final pieces of the eight-week project together. Over the years, no student has ever failed to reach his or her personal goal and conquer his or her phobias, with this year’s class bringing the record to 77-0.
