Clapp’s favorite memories at Appalachian are conducting student research and serving as editor of IMPULSE: The Premier Undergraduate Neuroscience Journal.

When asked about a faculty member who made an impact on his life, Clapp recognized Dr. Andrew Bellemer, Associate Professor; Dr. Joshua Broman-Fulks, Professor in the Department of Psychology; and Dr. Mark Zrull, Professor in the Department of Psychology.
