Undergrads to present at AEJMC


The work of two Elon University School of Communications students was accepted for presentation at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications Southeast Colloquium in Little Rock, Ark., March 6-8.

Megan Livengood's paper is titled "The Presence of Explicitly Theological Words in Successful Christian Music." The work was developed from a Senior Seminar project and completed while she was enrolled in an Independent Research course.

Jennifer Guarino's paper is titled "Shaping the Next Generation of Newspaper Readers." She began work on the project thanks to a summer research grant given through Elon's Summer Undergraduate Research Experience program. For more details on this program, which is open to all Elon students, see:


Both students were mentored in their research by Dr. Connie Book. "The pinnacle of the teaching experience for me is when my students are able to apply what they've learned in the critical examination of an aspect of the media that captivates their interest," said Book. "In both of these accepted research papers, students became active scholars versus passive learners, a true indicator of their future success."
