Student Jason Alipio to Present his Research at Capitol Hill Poster Session (new!)
CSUSB undergraduate Honor’s student Jason Alipio was recently accepted to participate in the 19th Annual Posters on the Hill, a prestigious undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. This April, Jason will be presenting his poster, Fluoxetine Exposure during Adolescence Disrupts Spatial Memory Performance in Adulthood, to members of Congress, Congressional staff, and representatives from federal agencies; his work examines whether antidepressant medications taken during adolescence lead to spatial memory-related deficits in adulthood. Jason’s research project was one of 60 selected from approximately 500 applications. The event is hosted by the Council of Undergraduate Research.
We extend our warm congratulations to Jason and his faculty mentor, Professor Sergio Iniguez! We know CSUSB will be well represented at this important event.
MFA Creative Writing Program Releases 7th Issue of National Literary Journal (new!)
The MFA Creative Writing Program recently released its 7th issue of Ghost Town, a national and international online literary journal featuring poetry, fiction, book reviews and art by both local and national authors and artists. Now in its 6th year, Ghost Town is produced by graduate students in the Creative Writing program, under the guiding hand of English professor Chad Sweeney, the faculty editor. Putting together a literary journal is a monumental task: “The students read thousands of submissions of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, from around the world, and must select the best 100 pages or so to include in an issue,” Sweeney said. “This represents a tremendous amount of work, dialogue, talent and critical discernment.”
Past issues have featured pieces by such notable authors as Nobel Prize Judge and Swedish poet Kjell Espmark, and National Book Critics Circle Award winner Laura Kasischke. The current issue includes an interview with CSUSB’s own Isabel Quintero, a recent MFA program graduate and winner of the American Library Association’s "Morris Award" for best debut Young Adult Novel. Take some time to explore the pages of Ghost Town.
Peer Statistics Specialist
Many students find statistics to be extremely challenging and demanding. Gerard E. Dallal’s article Is Statistics Hard illustrates why. In his article Dallal mentions that students struggle in statistics because they find the wording to be backwards, the methods to be convoluted, because they get confused with the idea that saying something failed to find an effect is different from showing there is no effect at all. The Office of Student Research has hired a Peer Statistics Specialist to assists students with questions about SPSS, data analysis, survey design and administration.
