Included in the field experience, Humboldt students and faculty jointly participated in an all-day field trip with another field class from CSU Northridge exploring urban geography in East Los Angeles. At the CGS meeting, Humboldt student presenters won awards in each of the three undergraduate presentation competitions. Keith Staats won first place in the Cartographic Map competition. Jeremy Webb won third place in the undergraduate student research presentation competition. Dulce Vallejo won the social justice presentation award (undergraduate or graduate student level competition).
