Student Scholars Symposium
The Second Annual Student Scholars Symposium was held at Lipscomb University this year. Students that have been involved in research with Lipscomb faculty are given an opportunity to present their work to fellow students and the Lipscomb faculty by means of a poster presentation or a paper presentation. The students involved in the symposium have taken excellence to an extremely high level. This year for the first time our School of Computing and Informatics participated. We had the privilege of having two groups that received support from LUCID(Lipscomb University Computing & Informatics Discovery). This is a prestigious and competitive research initiative that pairs faculty one-to-one with highly motivated undergratuate students. Freshman, Calvin Canada, worked with Dr. Eddy Borera on "Applying Natural Language Processing with Naive Bayes Classifier to Classify Tweets" while seniors Heidi Henline and Roxanne Spielvogel worked with Mrs. Becky Tallon and gave a paper presentation on "The Role of MVC in the Undergraduate Computing Curriculum" for which they got an outstanding presentation award. We look forward to other students from SCI working with faculty on exciting research.
