SDSU In the News

A look at some of the top media clips from throughout the week.
By SDSU News Team

San Diego State University and the work of its students, faculty and staff are regularly featured in news stories by media around the country. Each week SDSU’s Marketing and Communications team curates some of its favorite local, regional and national media clips to share with the SDSU community.

Psychology professor Jean Twenge is making national headlines again with research showing that societal acceptance of working moms is at an all-time high.  Time Magazine ran an exclusive story on her research, which was soon picked up by media outlets across the country including Health and The San Diego Union-Tribune. The story was also picked up by NBC stations nationwide, starting with NBC San Diego.

When the U.S. Supreme Court made their groundbreaking decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry in all 50 states, SDSU ethics lecturer Wendy Patrick went on San Diego 6 to discuss the decision and its implications; and economics professor Shoshana Grossbard spoke with National Mortgage News about how the decision may affect mortgages.

Patrick was also called on by San Diego 6 to take part in a panel discussion about the pros and cons of SB277, a new vaccination law that would remove the personal belief exemption that currently allows parents the right to avoid having their children immunized.

SDSU hospitality professor Carl Winston offered money saving tips for people planning to travel for the July 4th weekend in a Wallet Hub article on the best and worst cities to celebrate Independence Day.
