Statewide student research competition to take place at Sacramento State

Sacramento State will host the annual CSU Student Research Competition on April 29 and 30, featuring the work of nearly 200 students representing the 23 campuses of the California State University system. Presentations will be given from noon to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29 in the University Union, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 30 in Yosemite Hall.

The competition showcases research and creative projects conducted by CSU undergraduate and graduate students in all academic disciplines. The students will make oral presentations and answer questions before juries of experts from major corporations, foundations, public agencies, and colleges and universities in California. There will be 22 panels in nine different academic areas.

Research presentations will cover topics as varied as "Remembering Your Roots: A Pilot Project for Immigrant and First Generation Students," "Psychology and Politics: Intergroup Biases During the 2004 Presidential Election," "Ecstasy and Other Club Drug Use in Los Angeles, California," "Cryptic Speciation in Sea Slug Alderia modesta," "Paralinguistics of American Sign Language," and "Analysis of Alternatives to Mitigate Erosion of Sacramento River Levee."

Terry Manns, director of Research and Sponsored Projects, says the judges are always impressed with the high quality of work at the competition. "The students who compete at this level are polished and professional," Manns says. "Many have given talks at professional academic conferences."

The competition is open to the public. More information about the competition is available by contacting the office of Research and Sponsored Projects at (916) 278-7381. Media assistance is available by calling the University's public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
