Countdown to Commencement 2023: Emma Moscato

April 17, 2023

Psychology major Emma Moscato is the next member of the Class of 2023 to be featured in the “Countdown to Commencement” series. Moscato was nominated by Timothy Franz, professor and chair, Psychology Department.

Moscato is a repeat member of the Dean’s List when it comes to academics and is a member of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. She takes her skills and knowledge of the psychology field to the classroom as a lead lab assistant. In her many leadership roles, Moscato works hard to ensure the department runs smoothly – going above and beyond the normal requirements of the classroom. 

“Emma has a very positive attitude and is one of the most helpful and self-motivated lead lab assistants we’ve had. Her work ethic and dedication helped with department operations and without her we would not have been this efficient,” said Franz. 

One on-campus cause that Moscato has dedicated her time to is the Teddi Dance for Love. She has been a committee member for three years working to raise money for Camp Good Days and Special Times. Moscato participates for the kids at camp, any child that has been affected by cancer, and both of her grandmothers who passed away from cancer. 

“Emma is going to be incredibly successful in her career. Her kindness and friendly attitude are infectious and make her a leader in the classroom, the lab, and the Teddi dance floor,” said Franz. 

During her summer fellowship, she conducted research worldwide with individuals in Dubai and Turkey promoting the well-being of employees’ lives. Currently, she is doing field experience at a childcare center where she works with children of varying ages allowing her to build one-on-one connections while learning their mannerisms and ways of communicating. Post-graduation, she plans to pursue a master's degree in social work, and has a goal of working in a children’s hospital. 

“My Fisher experience has brought me opportunities for growth both academically and personally. From being a Summer Fellow to a lab assistant, I have been able to learn and experience situations that have better prepared me for the future.”
