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.

Best of SJSU: Best Place to Study on Campus

By: Ryan Whitchurch, Public Affairs Assistant

Looking for a place to study for finals? Last week we asked SJSU’s nearly 13,000 Facebook fans “Where’s the best place to study on campus?” About 35 Spartans posted tips including Kyle Chak, who said his favorite place to go is in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library.

“The top most floor of the SJSU King library is my place to study because I want some quiet time in addition to studying on campus,” Chak said.

Many Spartans like the mixture of studying environments the library provides on its different floors. Some said the quieter sixth, seventh, and eighth floors helped them focus; while others preferred the background noise of the lower levels to get their studies done.

“I loved to sit in the Library on 7th floor by the window overlooking 4th street and then going to La Vic to eat Chicken Quesadilla at night,” said alumnus Nikhil Paul.

And while many students will head over to King Library this week, others like Diana Barrientos prefer a different option during finals.

“Most definitely the Computer Services Center inside the Associated Students because everything you need is accessible from here: scanning, printers, computers, desk, HELP & FOOD,” Barrientos said.

The Student Union, Clark Hall, SJSU Newman Center and various classrooms around campus were also included as good options. You can see the full thread with Spartan recommendations on the SJSU Facebook post.

Thanks to all those who participated, and best of luck with finals. Go SJSU!

Sacramento, Calif.—–Adrian Oliver, second on the San Jose State career scoring list, signed a free agent contract with the Sacramento Kings. Geoff Petrie, the Kings’ President of Basketball Operations made the announcement.

Oliver completed his San Jose State career scoring 1,750 points in 80 games during the 2009 through 2011 seasons. He was a two-time first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection and the first Bay Area men’s college basketball player to finish in the top five nationally in scoring average twice.

147 Student-Athletes Recognized For Academic Achievement

San Jose State University recognized 147 student-athletes for success and excellence in the classroom at the 2011 Arm &amp; Pat Hanzad Scholar-Athlete Celebration in the Event Center on Thursday, December 1.

Student-athletes who earned a cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale for the 2010-11 academic year were eligible for recognition from the University’s athletics department.

“This event is one of our department’s finest,” Athletics Director Tom Bowen said.  “Seven years ago, when I arrived at San Jose State, we made a commitment to academic excellence.  I could not be prouder of what our athletes have accomplished in the classroom and on the field of play.”

Of the 147 Scholar-Athletes, 106 also received academic All-Conference honors from the Western Athletic Conference or the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. These Scholar-Athletes maintained a 3.00 or better cumulative grade-point average and participated in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests during the academic year.

Darci Anderson of the swimming and diving team; and Kelly Stewart, water polo, were cited as the five female student-athletes with the highest grade-point average. Basketball player Wil Carter; Luis Esparza, cross country, Blake McFarland, baseball, Nick Murphy, soccer and Joey Ruth, football, registered the top-five grade-point averages among the six men’s sports teams. Four of the ladies and one of the men have a cumulative grade-point average above 3.9.

Senior Kirsten Trammell and sophomore Darcie Anderson of the San Jose State University women’s swimming and diving team swam qualifying times in the 100 breaststroke for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team trials at the AT&T Winter National Championships.

Trammell (Goodyear, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) was timed in 1:11.30 and Anderson (Willows, Calif./Orland HS) in 1:11.31 in the long course preliminary heats at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center. The qualifying time for the Olympic Team trials next June in Omaha, Neb., is 1:12.19.

In the 100 breaststroke final (courtesy of USA Swimming & youtube.com) later in the day, Anderson posted a faster time of 1:11.29 to finish in 23rd place. Trammell placed in 26th place with a 1:12.04 time.
