What an amazing first week of class! Things that have happened…
Sorry I haven’t had much time to do an update for the past week, its been a little crazy making sure I am staying on top of my studies, projects, and life. But it has been going way better than expected. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect for my first week of college but I do know that I am definitely a much better student now then I was back in high school. I “WANT” to learn, I “AM” interested in the subject matter. It has also been great meeting new people in class. I have already made friends with a bunch of people and plan on getting to know more as class continues.
The first week was very interesting in class. This Digital Literacy class is really getting us to think about how we communicate in the world today more so as digital communication is becoming the most common way to communicate. My Teacher Paul Hayes has been great! Keeping it interesting and entertaining at the same time. I do enjoy how this is considered a General Education class yet they tailor it to our degree. I am mixed with all kinds of degrees in this class. Tons of people are at Full Sail for Music, and it has been really cool meeting some real talented people. Since music is such a HUGE part of my life it will be fun to be around musical artists and be able to see them blossom as artists as I do in my art.
Right now for the second week we have been split into groups and my group, Team Galaxy has to do a presentation based on what two other teams had to present. basically we get to be the judge and decide who we thought gave the best presentation and why. Our subject is Does Video Games Help or Hinder Literacy Today. So I am working on my first PowerPoint presentation ever to present our findings. It will be very interesting to see how we do and how my teammates like my PowerPoint I have worked on. Looking forward to collaborating to make it perfect so we all get A’s. But I’ll keep you all updated on my grades.
I can not even imagine how much fun my classes will be once I get into my actual Major of Video Game Art. And the bad part is our classes go so fast. Full Sail teaches you what you need to learn in 4 weeks what other colleges take 16 weeks to teach you. So it is pretty intense to say the least.
