During my Sophomore year at Muskingum University I took Intro to COMM 150, Intro to Convergent Media. In the class we learned how to do work in multiple outlets of the media. I learned how to conduct professional interviews, properly take photos on a mobile device, AP Style, to write for a newspaper, manage a website and how to use a ZOOM recorder. I wrote four stories during my time in the class.
- The first story was about a retired member of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigations, Marty Scott.
- The second was a story about a fellow student at Muskingum University who did something interesting, I chose varsity wrestler Jordan Burkholder.
- Next I wrote about a Professor at Muskingum University who had an interesting hobby outside of school, I chose film maker and anthropologist Steven McGuire.
- For my final paper I wrote about a local non-profit organization, the Zanesville High School Japanese Anime and Culture Club.
