Create@State is an annual event dedicated to the pursuit of research and creativity at Arkansas State, according to Andrew Sustich, vice provost for research and graduate studies. The day-long session Thursday included oral, poster, creative and artistic presentations from both graduate and undergraduate students.

Corey Green, a junior psychology major of Hot Springs, said she was a little nervous but felt good about speaking on her research “Analysis of Stalking Among Adolescents” during Create@State.

“It’s a good way for students to showcase what they have been working on,” Green said. Green also said the experience of presenting can help students prepare for professional research conferences. “It’s like A-State’s own little science fair,” she said.

Create@State offered a supportive yet professional environment to students who might be showcasing their scholarly work for the first time.

“I think it went really well,” said Alex Swenson, a senior psychology major of Poplar Bluff, Mo., who co-presented “To Free or Not to Free: Crime Control vs. Due Process Orientation” early Thursday morning. He said the time he invested in his research made presenting at Create@State well worth the effort.

“I am proud of the intellect, creativity and innovation taking place at Arkansas State,” Sustich said in a press release. “ This event is a testament to the rich learning experiences that are provided by our outstanding faculty.”
