Cameron University students selected to present research papers

Two Cameron University communication students were selected to present research papers at the 22nd Annual Sooner Communication Conference at the University of Oklahoma in early March. Michael Faggett and Philip Richardson each submitted a paper chosen for inclusion in the conference. Cameron was one of 10 universities that participated in the conference.

Faggett, a senior from Dallas, Texas, presented his paper titled "An Analysis of Online Communication Courses," which explores the influence of online instruction on communication learning outcomes.

Richardson is a junior from Lawton. His paper, "A Critical Review of Symbolic Interactionism," examine the role of symbols in producing meaning.

Both projects were under the direction of Dr. Justin Walton, Associate Professor of Communication.

The Sooner Communication Conference is an OU graduate student-organized event joining faculty and students from schools throughout the region and the nation. The conference presents an opportunity for students and faculty to discuss developments in theory and research across the communication discipline and for students to fine-tune research papers for other conferences and possible publications.
