33rd Annual Student Research Competition Top Presenters

Congratulations to the winners of the CSUC 33rd Annual Student Research Competition held March 12, 2019!

On that evening, 57 students were vying for a chance to be one of 10 student researchers from our campus selected to compete against hundreds of other students at the CSU Statewide Research Competition held at CSU, Fullerton, April 26-27.

Both the local and statewide competitions are held to promote and recognize excellence in student scholarly research and creative activities. The participants submit a 5-page research description and give a short presentation before a panel of judges. Their work is judged on clarity of purpose, appropriateness of methodology, interpretation of results, clear articulation of the research, and ability to field questions from the jury and audience.

As usual, the judges, other presenters, and audience members were impressed and inspired by the quality and rigor of the students' work. Selecting the winners and runners-up this year was a particularly challenging task for our judges.

Thanks to all of the students who participated and the faculty mentors who supported them. Again, our congratulations to these Top Presenters:
