Student Recognition Day Focuses on Multimedia

Committee Award for Papers, Posters, Photo Essays, and Videos

A committee of St. Francis College professors from across disciplines awarded thirteen projects on Student Recognition Day at the College, recognizing excellent academic work presented in a wide variety of mediums on May 2.

In the past, the annual event traditionally focused on essays and papers, but this year the committee recognized a wealth of projects that demonstrate how multimedia can be embedded into and represent meaningful, scholarly, and serious academic work.

Among the winners were St. Francis students Kelsey Papanicolaou ’16 and Valia Haskopoulos ’14 with their friend Leah Vanden Bosch for the Visual Sociology project, “When Visual Images of Hurricane Sandy Got Personal.” The three explored the personal impact of the storm on their lives.

Collaborations were also recognized including one by Marieta Grancaric, Frank Randall ‘15, and Colin Todd for their Visual Research project, “More Than a Mapp,” which added historic African-American sites in Brooklyn to the tablet app, More Than a Mapp, which is available on Apple and Android products.

A quartet of aspiring teachers; Marianna Emilio, Darrin Glenn, Ashley Romero, and Shannon Ruiz were honored for their Comprehensive Unit Plan: “The Great Gatsby and Roaring Twenties.”

Traditional research papers were also honored including; “How Socrates Secretly Made Me into a Modern Gadfly” by Marciano Proeve, “The Notion of Infinity in Our Universe” by Mayra Vialette, and “The Concept of Sexuality in Latin America” by Savanna Bailey.

St. Francis College, founded in 1859 by the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, is located in Brooklyn Heights, N.Y. Since its founding, the College has pursued its Franciscan mission to provide an affordable, high-quality education to students from New York City’s five boroughs and beyond.
