Final Reflection Multimodal Mini-Ethnography

While writing these three articles I was able to refine my revising process so that I didn’t leave any information out. I accidentally found this new process because when I first wrote the articles all I did was cram as much information into the articles as I could and they were incredibly bland. As I was going back through and rereading the articles I was able to note in each place what kind of original content to insert with the information to complement it.

Multimodal Reflection

For my Multimodal project, I decided to cover the field of Greek life. I did this because with my major being accounting there was not much room for creativity and this assignment was one that I felt I needed to be creative with so that I could do my best. Next to my major, Greek life has affected me the most in my time at Appalachian State so I felt it fit to use it as my topic. By creating three different articles; one on the history of Greek Life, one on the councils and system at ASU, and one … Continue reading Multimodal Reflection

Now, since I was a recruitment chair … Continue reading Pros, Cons, And What To Know (Article 3): Draft 2

Greek Life: A Brief History By: Trevor White “Fraternities and Sororities symbolize all that we wish to accomplish in our lives. They represent the struggles we all face as we grow.

Article Three: The Pros and Cons of joining Greek Life and how Joining works First of all, let me say that since I have not gone through sorority recruitment this is going to lean more toward recruitment for guys.
