Name: Alexis Smoot
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

Classification/Major: Senior Computer Information Systems major.

My Livingstone Journey:  Prior to being recruited to play softball, I had no knowledge of Livingstone College. I am excited to say that if everything goes as planned I will be graduating May 5, 2018, with Honors.

I am currently a member of the Livingstone College Honors Program, Alpha Kappa Mu Honors Society, Phi Beta Lambda Business Society, and the Pitcher for Livingstone College Softball Team.  I have been on the Dean’s List, a Merit Scholar, and a President Scholar since my arrival here at Livingstone College.

Upon graduating with my Bachelor’s in Computer Information Systems, I plan to attend graduate school at Northeastern University to obtain my Masters in Computer Science and a certification in Project Managing with a concentration in Data Analytics.

On tutoring: I have been a Writing Tutor for two years. I wanted to be a tutor so I can help students not get lost in the curriculum and become just another statistic. I am in the honors program, and when I arrived here I received proper guidance to help me succeed. All students don’t receive that type of guidance. I am older, wiser, and I have been here at Livingstone since my freshman year, so I want to be able to guide those who need it.

Fun fact:
  I have been a Lifeguard since I was 15.
