Video: Writing Center Gives Elementary Students Grammar Tips and a Glimpse of College

By Dillon Adams

The Writing Center at SJSU recently put on an event with Horace Mann Elementary School. The students were able to participate in workshops to learn about writing and grammar techniques. The program was created to give Horace Mann Elementary school students a chance to experience SJSU at a young age, with the hope that they will be more interested in attending college after they graduate from high school.

Growth In Clubs and Organizations Creates New Campus Vibe

By Ryan Whitchurch, Public Affairs Assistant

students gathered around in a circle listening to Blake Balajadia present at the Fraternal Values Summit in 2011.

Blake Balajadia presents to students at the 2011 Fraternal Values Summit.

The moment he stepped onto campus in fall 2008, Cesar Delgadillo, a fourth-year design studies major, felt a sense of pride for San Jose State University based on his freshmen orientation experience.

“I remember seeing the connection all of the orientation leaders had with one another,” said Delgadillo. “This made me want to get more involved so that I could have similar connections during my college career, and I’m happy that I did.”

The next year, Delgadillo applied to become a Frosh Orientation leader and was granted the position. Since acquiring this role, Delgadillo has joined a number of other campus organizations that he feels have helped him become more comfortable with himself and his leadership capabilities.

Today at SJSU, the number of students involved on campus is on the rise, creating a spike in the number of campus clubs and organizations and some impressive participation numbers. Associate Director of Student Involvement Emily Bauer says the unprecedented amount of students getting involved is creating a shift in campus culture.

“When I came in 2007, it seemed like people just went about their business and went home,” Bauer said. “These days, we have seen an increase in participation in all programs making SJSU a destination campus that students want to come to.”

In 2006, there were 225 on-campus organizations at SJSU. Today there are 359 student organizations, and Bauer expects this number will grow to around 400 organizations by the end of the year.

“On campus today there’s a different feeling,” said Blake Balajadia, assistant director for fraternity and sorority life. “the university is coming alive like never before.”

Students that get involved in a campus club, organization, leadership role or Greek life reap plenty of benefits, Balajadia said. Building a greater connection to SJSU propels students towards graduation and establish networks that may help them secure a job after graduation, he said.

“I always urge students to take a chance and check out a club or event that interests them,”  Balajadia said, “If all you walk out of this university with is a piece of paper, you’re really missing out.”

San Jose State is also making sure new Spartans connect with the university from their first day on campus. SJSU’s Frosh Orientation, a mandatory overnight program for incoming freshmen, is setting a new standard for students and is a driving force behind the increasing involvement trends.

“This past summer, the Frosh Orientation program, served nearly 4,300 students and 1,600 family members,” said Director of Student Involvement Richard Kelley.

Kelley said this year’s summer program had the largest class to date and received its highest evaluation and assessment scores in its 10-year history. A turning points in creating more campus pride began with increased support from former President Don Kassing.

“He made creating a sense of connection and pride at SJSU a priority,” Kelley said. “It was only when engagement and involvement became priorities that our campus could see change.”

Five years later, an increase in enrollment paired with a shift in campus participation from students hungrier to get more involved has SJSU’s campus life flourishing.

“There is a bigger sense of community on campus. I would say it just feels different and it feels great!” Bauer said. “People are excited to be here and want to make the most of their time at SJSU.”

Students can learn more about the organizations on campus and how to get involved by visiting http://www.sjsu.edu/bored, or attending an event for an on campus club or organization.

Alumna’s NASA Internship Leads to New Job and Award

Black and white photo of Amelia Reid with an airplane.

A recent alumna processed the papers of an alumna from long ago, NASA "human computer" and aviation enthusiast Amelia Reid.

Editor’s note: The following first appeared in the School of Library and Information Science Community Profiles blog. For an internship, alumna Ratana Ngaotheppitak processed the papers of the late Amelia Reid, a NASA “human computer” who was also an SJSU mathematics alumna.

Alumna Ratana Ngaotheppitak’s seven-month internship at the NASA Ames Research Center helped her secure a job as a NASA Archivist and earn the 2011 SLIS Jean Wichers Professional Practice Award.

“The internship at NASA was the perfect opportunity to gain experience and start working for an agency that will put me on the path to a career in government archives,” said Ngaotheppitak, who graduated from SJSU SLIS in May 2011.

During her Fall 2010 archives internship, Ngaotheppitak worked with a collection documenting one of the “human computers” at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) in the 1940s and 1950s. She processed the Amelia Reid Papers from start to finish by completing the accession record, taking an inventory of the materials, performing preservation work, creating a finding aid and a MARC record, and encoding the finding aid for display in the Online Archive of California.

Her professional experience at NASA made Ngaotheppitak a strong candidate for the position of Life Sciences Data Archivist, which she was offered in March 2011. She was subsequently awarded the Jean Wichers Professional Practice Award by SJSU SLIS faculty to recognize her achievements.

As a student, Ngaotheppitak worked hard to develop a professional network and to find learning opportunities. She contacted NASA to arrange a tour of the History Office when she first moved to San Jose, and established a relationship with the History Office Archivist before applying for her internship.

“When you’re a student you have to be really proactive to get the experience that will help you find a job,” explained Ngaotheppitak. “Internships are so valuable, because you really start to network and you have the opportunity to get your foot in the door in a career that you want.”

Ngaotheppitak grew up attending air shows with her father, a mechanical engineer, and has dreamed of working for NASA ever since she decided to become an archivist. One of the reasons she enrolled at SJSU SLIS in Spring 2009 was because of our School’s professional internship opportunities with the NASA Ames Research Center’s History Office and with other institutions.

At SJSU SLIS Ngaotheppitak focused on the Archival Studies Career Pathway and took elective courses in web usability and cataloging, which now support her work in the Life Sciences Data Archive. Ngaotheppitak’s job involves cataloging data from NASA’s space flight experiments, preserving audio and visual materials, and working with the documents collection. She also provides reference services to researchers in the small science library.

“I’m so lucky to be working here, and I’m learning so much,” Ngaotheppitak said.

These San Jose State students decided to find out and are blogging about their experiences as they adapt to a new lifestyle while getting acclimated to their surroundings.

Public relations major Marco Negrete, Jr. is expanding his horizons and taking on the challenge to study abroad one semester in Hong Kong. “My time at SJSU allowed me to become a more cultured person through living and interacting in such a diverse community,” Negrete wrote in his blog. “I was able to turn that new and unfamiliar place into my second home. Although, this is a bit more extreme than going from one part of the state to another, I’m confident that I’ll be fine.”

Aspiring entertainment journalist Keith Bryant is following his dreams and taking a bite out of the Big Apple as an intern for MTV’s True Life. “The theme of the MTV intern program is called ‘Powered By You,’” Bryant said in one recent post. “I truly believe this statement because you make what your internship is. I plan on coming to work with a positive attitude and eagerness to learn. I am absolutely going to take advantage of this opportunity and improve myself for the better.”

You can follow along with Spartans as they blog about their adventures and develop into young professionals that will undoubtedly make their mark on the world.

Here I am-Hong Kong By Marco Henry Negrete, Jr.
Here I am, 7 thousand miles away from home in Hong Kong. Even though I’ve planned this trip for 2 years, I start to question if I’m really prepared. Is planning the same thing as preparing? Has it hit me yet? How do you know when it “hits you?”  Read more from Marco in his blog.
