PRactical Advice

Comm 240 is an very interesting class taught by a great professor (by the way can I get some extra credit?) As long as you can stay on task and focus on your work you should be fine! However, with that said there is some advice that can come in handy!

Firstly, make sure you stay on top of blogging assignments! Bookmark your blog and set a reminder to make sure you don’t miss any posts! Also don’t forget to do your comments!

Second have a dedicated notebook in which to take notes during lectures. There’s a lot of information and having it all written down will help you study and remember information.

Thirdly, make sure that you keep track of projects you have going on. They are worth a lot of points and you’ll really regret it if you accidentally miss a deadline.

Last but certainly not least make sure you study for tests. Enough said with that one!

With these tips in mind you’ll have no problems in this class.


Pseudo Social

A huge part of our society is Social Media. For a relatively new phenomena is surprising how engrained it is in our world. Ten years ago if you told someone you were going to check your Facebook they would look at you like you were crazy. Now you’ll get the same reaction if you aren’t signed up for one.

Social media is especially popular with my generation, as we are the most technologically active. As a college freshman almost all my peers and for the most part everyone I interact with has a smart phone and a laptop, and is constantly on one of the two, if not both. Personally, i’m not all that active on social media but I have what I consider the big 3; Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. From what I’ve seen these are the most common and popular ones. If someone  has any for of social media chances are it’s at least one if not all 3 of these.

Facebook I don’t use very much anymore, mostly only when I’m really bored and procrastination homework. I mostly use Facebook on my laptop, I’ll have a tab open and just scroll down my news feed.

Twitter I use very often, always on my phone. It’s an easy way to keep up to date with what my my friends are up to.

Instagram I also don’t use all that frequently, always on my phone though. Im mostly on that only when my girlfriend sends me funny videos to watch.

Honestly, there aren’t any functions that i can think of that are missing from any social media cites that I use. They have all been refined and updated to the point that they are almost too clunky, any thing more would be too much in my opinion.
Social media as it is now is the most optimal it has been and will be for the forceable future.

Let’s get Acquainted

Hello! My name is Dennis Andreev and I’m a freshman at Saint Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, where I study strategic communications and theater. I was born in Moscow, Russia but I attended high school in Illinois. When I’m not in class, I’m usually doing something related to theater, hanging out with my friends or watching Netflix.
