9th Annual Student Symposium

City College held its 9th Annual Student Project & Research Symposium on May 1 in Gorton Quad.

The Symposium organizing committee honors certain students who took their time in a specific topic that they were concerned with and worked on it by researching the issues and creating a display for the event.

“Twenty students of mine did the research project, but I had to only choose five of the students who did a great job,” said Luis Perez, Personal Growth Professor and Counselor.

Students had a variety of different topics that they researched and displayed, from “The Correlation Between Active and Passive Procrastination,” by Viola Ninchak, to “Age Preference in Dating for Casual vs. Lifelong Partners,” by Kelsey Currier.

Students were told to write about a particular topic in which they are very passionate about and explain about it in all different forms, as Ana Camarillo did with her topic “Dealing with Divorce.”

“I started my assignment off with a questionnaire which I made up myself,” said Camarillo.

Camarillo explained the intent of her project was to inform the public about how adults and children deal with divorce and how therapy is a great option to have.

The event also held different activities other than the displays, like a “History of Hair,” makeup tutorials and performances of martial arts, zumba and hip-hop dance routines.
