Southern Nazarene University (SNU) students Tim Solum and Jeremy Acre have been invited to a research conference to be held this summer in Vancouver, Canada where each will present their research during a special student workshop.

Jeremy Acre and Tim Solum

Jeremy Acre will present “Adapting to a Changing Environment Using Winner and Loser Effects.” Acre authored the research with the support and assistance of Dr. Brent E. Eskridge (SNU), Dr. Nicholas Zoller (SNU), and Dr. Ingo Schlupp (OU).

Tim Solum will present “Consensus Costs and Conflict in a Collective Movement.” Solum collaborated with Dr. Brent E. Eskridge (SNU), and Dr. Ingo Schlupp (OU) on the research and presentation.

Dr. Eskridge, Professor and Chair of the Computer Science and Network Engineering Department at SNU, reports that local companies are actively recruiting at SNU when looking for Network Engineering graduates to hire.

“A recruiter for Hewlett Packard recently came to campus to talk to our SNU students regarding some career opportunities,” Eskridge reported. “He was amazed to see that our undergraduate Network Engineering students get to work ‘hands-on’ with all the equipment we have (e.g., router, switches, and the blade server funded through a donation from a local company).”
