Hi. I'm Adrian, a senior Communication Arts (Rhetoric) and Gender and Women's Studies double-major.And who is everyone else?
Well, hi, there, Adrian, I'm glad to see we're going to have a class together, and I should have known. Awesome!I'm Sarah, a grad student in SLIS (that's library school, for those who don't know). I'm roughly 800 years old and have been playing video games since Pong and the original Atari.I'm interested in the culture(s) of video games, thins like the replication of economic structures within them, etc.See you in class.
Hey! My name is Nick, and I'm going to be a Senior majoring in Journalism. I had Greg for J201 so I'm pretty excited for this class.
I'm Greg, going on my 5th year majoring in Communication arts.
Hello, I'm Jon, a senior English major. That's about it for now...
Greg S. - Which side of comm. arts are you on? Just curious...
I'm on the radio, tv, and film side
Hey, my name is Ryan and I am a philosophy major.
Hi, I'm Jo. I'm a "Special Student", which means that I'm just taking classes for fun, and to get back into an academic mindset. I have a BA in Psychology from Ohio University.
Hi I'm Eric. I'm going to be a senior majoring in economics and legal studies, and hopefully going to law school after graduating.
Hello everyone. Sorry it took me a while to get geared up here. I'm not exactly the most technologically savvy person and so naturally I had to find my way across the digital divide (well, nopt literally, seeing as how I did so several years ago). I am a senior Journalism and Mass Comm. major (Strat. Comm.). I am a young sprout at 22 years of age who left video games behind (for the most part) after Super Nintendo. Yes, I was a Super Nintendo guy (not a Sega man. I am interested in the culture and history of video games because it stands as a glaring missing piece of my understanding of all of the facets of mass communication and because I am still trying to figure out what stopped me from continuing my video game adventures those many years ago.I look forward to class with all of you and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to partake in such an avant-garde class!
