I am ecstatic to have been placed in this course for my FYS. I expect to constantly using different media outlets including websites, twitter, and other forms of tangible media to share my projects and class assignments. I believe that this course will better prepare me as a writer, a thinker, and as a Media and Communications major. Having my own presence on the internet through ‘Berg Builds is an effective way to share my thoughts and ideas with others and since I would like to go into a career in sports media, I will already have experience communicating my views and ideas with others. Technology for me is a way for people to connect with each other on a global scale. I met my roommate on Facebook during the summer. Technology brings people together who may not know each other otherwise. I have no concerns about posting my assignments online for others to see. As many journalists know, people will perceive posts and articles different from others and while I need to be careful what I say, I will use this media outlet to my advantage and share my thoughts and stories with the rest of the world.
