Environmental Psychology Trip to Ottawa

The weekend of October 23, Dr. Greene’s Environmental Psychology class took a trip to Ottawa for field experience in the subject. Environmental psychology focuses on the relationship between people and their environments and how both shape each other. Although one of many, the Ottawa field trip is the major trip of the class.

Students spent the entire day in Ottawa visiting points of interest relevant to the class. They went on a guided tour of Parliament, explored the ByWard Market, and toured the National Gallery of Canada. The class also toured through some residential areas of the city via bus to examine architectural styles. Ottawa, the Canadian capital, is home to many attractions worthy of seeing regardless of being in the Environmental Psychology class or not. It is home to the 6k Rideau Canal which is great for skating in the winter, seven art galleries, multiple theaters, and the Winterlude and Tulip Festivals.
