The 13th Annual Lipscomb University Student Scholars Symposium | April 11, 2024
We welcome presentations of empirical research of all types; readings/performances of original poetry, music, and theater; and exhibitions of artistic and scientific work. Students, consider presenting your original work and coming to celebrate the work of your classmates.
Tessa Vander Kamp ('23)
Tessa Vander Kamp, a senior nutrition and dietetics major, stays busy with her pursuit of becoming a registered dietitian. This past academic year, Vander Kamp and Dr. Tracy Noerper, director of the nutrition master's program, collaborated to put Noerper's hypothesis to test—examining the spice and herb content of food in congregate meals served for seniors.
Aaron Hardy ('24)
Aaron Hardy, a junior civil engineering major from Parkersburg, West Virginia, learned a lot about creating a solid foundation for structures in his civil engineering materials class. However, after competing in a class project to create a new concrete formula to make it as strong as possible, he became interested in the scientific principles that underpin building regulations and civil engineering best practices.
