These past few weeks have flown by. As our last assignment, in Media Convergence, we had to do a group project. For our group project we had to write a six hundred word story together and then each of us had to write a side bar of three hundred words.
For the six hundred word story we decided, as a team, that we would write about students who were having problems graduating on time because of a lack of appropriate classes at UWF. I interviewed our Communications advisor. I learned that she is working with students to make sure that they the students meet their class requirements and their graduation date.
I was worried about my story the most because for the last month I have not been feeling well. I’m ok. I went to my doctor, received antibiotics and I am on the way to recovery. So, to keep on top of things, I started my story right away. I did interviews, and took pictures. Sadly, my pictures didn’t come out the way I wanted them too, and I am sure that I will pay a price when my grade is reduced. My story was on student housing and I feel like I learned a lot about how the housing system works. I met with the director of management for housing and I learn that housing costs go up because of utility and maintenance costs, and also because of the areas around town that offers other housing options for students.
One thing I learned from the group project is to not interrupt people while they are talking! I am so sorry guys. It’s something that I need to work on and the next time I have a group project I will do better. I also wish my photos where better. I am still learning how to take better photos and what to look for as far as lighting goes.
All in All, I feel that this was a good group project and I think that we did well with this. Go team Cronkite: Kevin, Amanda, Alejandra, and Carole! We made it through the term!
