University of Central Oklahoma student Jason Robletto, a modern language major from Manteca, recently received the Liberal Arts Symposium Best Paper in Modern Languages Award from Central’s College of Liberal Arts in recognition of academic excellence and outstanding service to the university.

Robletto’s paper, “La personalidad cremeriana,” explores the post-Spanish civil war poetry movement that took place between 1940 and 1975, known as Spanish social poetry, with a main focus on the poetry of Victoriano Cremer. He explained how Cremer’s poems depict the struggles many families faced during the mid 1900’s, and at the same time represent the poet’s social and political beliefs.

“The faculty and staff in the College of Liberal Arts are exceedingly proud of the accomplishments of our award and scholarship recipients. These students have demonstrated a great deal of effort and meritorious academic achievement,” said Gary Steward, Ph.D., dean of Central’s College of Liberal Arts.

Located just north of Oklahoma City in Edmond, Okla., the University of Central Oklahoma is the state’s largest metropolitan university, serving more than 17,000 students pursuing degrees in 116 undergraduate major areas of study and 59 graduate programs, and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
