Headshot of Madison Stange


Each year at fall convocation, the Alumni Gold Medal is presented to a master’s and a doctoral student to recognize their academic excellence.  This year’s MA level award is being presented to Madison Stange from the CNS division.  The award winners are selected based on their record of scholarship, including evidence of originality and creativity.  According to her supervisor, despite having completed her MA this summer, she has already become one of the world’s leading experts on a hugely popular form of gambling – namely scratch cards.  She has already published four articles on the psychological and physiological impact of scratch cards on gamblers, with a number of other studies in the works.

                           Congratulations Madison!
