Each year, Portland State University’s faculty and staff come together to nominate PSU’s most distinguished students for the Student Achievement Awards. Students can be recognized in three categories: Academic Achievement, University Service and Community Involvement. This year, nearly 300 students were nominated, the largest number in recent history. “I am incredibly impressed with the level of hard work and dedication I have come across,” commented J.R. Tarabocchia, Outreach & Advancement Coordinator whose office administers the awards.
From radon hazards to bicycle transportation, from eco-roofs to social network theory, the work of 250 students will be on display Wednesday, May 8 at Portland State University’s first-ever Campus-Wide Student Research Symposium.
