I chose a story of a college student(s) moving into college because it is easy to relate to. For me, the move-in process was a scary, but exciting one. Having grown up in a small town and having the same group of best friends since kindergarten it was tough to leave them behind. I was moving into Saint Joseph’s university in Philadelphia. It is about 5 hours away, everything about it is different. The setting, people, food, weather all were a culture shock to me. This was my favorite assignment of the week because it drew back memories from my move-in experience. To complete this activity I googled images of the move-in process (leaving home, arriving at school, moving into dorm, meeting new people, and saying goodbye to family). I uploaded each photo to my flickr account and created an album.
I chose to do the activity “tell a story in five frames”. My story is of a college student(s) moving in. It was a sequence of events that I have put together in order using images from the web. I uploaded the images to my flickr and an album. I captioned each photo with a title to describe the picture. First, the student leaves home and drives to college. Second, he or she arrives on campus. Third, the student moves into the dorm. Fourth, after unpacking the kid meets his roommate(s). Lastly, the hardest part is to say goodbye to family.
