Students take top honors at SACNAS

CSU Monterey Bay students took a first-place award and two seconds at the recent conference of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science.

CSUMB was represented by 15 undergraduates, four graduate students and four students from other schools who were part of last summer’s Monterey Bay Regional Ocean Science Research Experience for Undergraduates based at CSUMB. They presented research posters in ecology and evolution, general biology and marine biology.

While penguins and seals call it home, there are few permanent human residents on Antarctica. But, each year, several thousand people temporarily reside at research stations scattered across the continent.

At the moment, two of them are CSU Monterey Bay alumni.
