Sentiment analysis; University of Iowa--Public opinion; Iowa State University--Public opinion; University of Northern Iowa--Public opinion;
The purpose of this project was to create my own sentiment analysis that would allow me to analyze reviews of the three Iowa state schools: University of Iowa, Iowa State, and University of Northern Iowa, and organize them in a way that showed the strong and weak points of each university. I accomplished this by researching how sentiment analysis works, applying that to the construction of my own sentiment analysis, and then using it on reviews about these three schools. The goal of this project was to give my audience a greater understanding of how sentiment analysis works by creating my own that generated an organized list of each school's strengths and weaknesses. This list can then be used by incoming freshmen and transfer students to help them pick the best school for them.
