City College will show off its intellect by sending 20 honors students with a range of research topics to the 3rd Annual Bay Honors Consortium Honors Research Symposium held at UC Berkeley on May 1.

Community college honors students from 15 schools across California will give research presentations followed by a rigorous question and answer session.

“We’ll be there in strength, yet again proving that CCSF is the best and brightest community college in the state,” City College honors student Jesse Clayburgh said.

Clayburgh will present his research on gross domestic product as an inaccurate economic indicator. Other City College research topics cover a wide range of fields, including art, medicine, business and social sciences.

“Presentations will be very diverse,” Clayburgh said. “I’ve had the chance to preview several, and they promise to be exciting and informative.”

Admission is $20 for anyone wishing to attend the event. All proceeds go to the Bay Honors Consortium. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
