These writings make up the different forms of journalism that put together my thesis/portfolio. These selections illustrate the expansive reach of the journalism major. My thesis includes articles covering various issues. The research and writing that went into each piece was an important step in my journalism career. Inside are two narrative pieces, the first one short and simple and the second a lengthier, more extensive piece on religion on college campuses. The piece after that is one called Senseless, a story on a product that seems be marketing false claims to users. My most personal essay succeeds those—it is called Confronting Apathy and is about the experience of seeing my Grandmother with Alzheimer’s with my mother and sister. I hope these articles are as enjoyable and significant to the reader as they were to me when I was writing it.
