SDSU IV Students participated in the Student Research Symposium on the main campus and received awards.

On March 6-7, 2 history majors, 7 math majors, 2 graduate public administration majors and 3 liberal studies majors participated in SDSU Student Research Symposium. We traveled by rental vans and stayed overnight at Best Western Lamplighter, funded by instructionally related activities and faculty student mentoring program grants, so that students could attend both days to see the work of others and also give their presentations some of which occurred on Friday and others on Saturday. Presentations were either by poster or oral report, and all of the studies centered around the Imperial Valley Wetlands as a way to cleanse local waterways and the Salton Sea.

Javier Gonzalez received a Provost's award for their (co-authored) poster, and Rosa Del Angel received a President's award for their (co-authored) oral presentation, "Bringing public good through the collaboration of government and non-government organizations." They demonstrated knowledge and enthusiasm in both presentations, and fielded questions very well.

This was a win-win for the students, SDSU and the Wetlands because the poster is hanging in San Diego, and it was hanging at an important meeting last Monday (copy in our library), and they will repeat their oral presentation at the state-wide competition for CSU in early May, San Bernardino.

Here is the poster that won a provost's award at SDSU Student Research Symposium ( ). Then Rosa Del Angel and Javier Gonzalez won a presidential award for their oral presentation on the same topic.

Respectfully submitted, Faculty Mentor Diana Verzi, Professor of Mathematics.
