GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Creative juices were flowing as potential competitors for the CSU Student Research Competition began the application process last Wednesday. A small group of Liberal Arts professors hosted the workshop to help students apply and inform them on the competition that will showcase their scholarly research and creative work. English professor Jennifer Arin and College of Liberal & Creative Arts Associate Dean of Student and Curricular Services, Susan B. Shimanoff, facilitated the event and helped guide students. Roberto Berrocal, Industrial Design major, plans to submit a research paper focused on ways to create a positive impact in the world through consumer product usage and purchasing decisions. He learned about the competition from an email and through his professor, who encouraged him to enter his work. “When I first sent it to (my professor), she told me it’s really good stuff and told me I should keep going,” Berrocal said.
