Would you rather be a better person or have more money? Gettysburg College senior Nevena Todorova is researching to find out. With the help of a prestigious Mellon research grant, the international student from Bulgaria collaborated on her senior honors project with economics Prof. John Cadigan.
Todorova came to Gettysburg planning to concentrate on economics and business. "It's usually what Bulgarians major in," she said. After a last-minute change to her first-year schedule, Todorova studied psychology and found a passion for the subject. Now she is an economics and psychology double major, and has found a synthesis of her two interests in behavioral economics.
