Brilliance and Creativity on Display

The Student Research Symposium will showcase both original scholarly research and creative arts.

San Diego State University students will present research and perform creative routines at the 10th annual Student Research Symposium (SRS) taking place March 3-4 in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union.

The competition and exhibition will feature both undergraduate and graduate students describing their original scholarly work in a variety of disciplines such as health nutrition, clinical sciences, behavioral and social sciences, physical sciences, biology, mathematics, humanities, business, economics, public administration, engineering, and computer science. The symposium will also showcase students’ visual and performing arts pieces.

Last year, more than 500 students participated in the SRS and a similar number is expected to present their work this year. A panel of SDSU faculty and staff judges will evaluate the presentations and give 10 Presidential Awards of $500 to works and research of exceptional merit. These awardees will go on to represent SDSU at the annual California State University Research Competition in April.

Several other disciplinary awards will be given based on merit. The awardees will be announced at a closing reception on March 4.

The symposium is in need of judges and moderators for the event.

The areas that are in need of judges are:
  • Behavioral & Social Sciences
  • Biological & Agricultural Sciences
  • Engineering & Computer Sciences
  • Health Nutrition & Clinical Sciences
