Week 2- My Publics

What is a “public”? Which publics are you a member of? How did you choose to become a member of those publics? (Choose and discuss at least three.)

A public is a group that you associate with.

1. Southeastern University Students- By attending this University, I become involved in the campus life and the lives of the other student’s here.

2. Journalism Major- In journalism it is important to practice your skills, and perfect them. I have joined The Southeastern Times newspaper staff to develop my writing styles.

3. Resident of Esperanza- Since I realized I would be living here for 4 years, I decided to live on campus and get involved in the lives of the girls who also live here. I took a position as a community leader, and hope to be an R.A. for the fall of 2010.

  1. I was reading your list of publics and I had to comment, simply because so many of mine match yours! I, too, am a Southeastern University student and journalism major. Also, although I’m not a resident of Esperanza, I am a community leader, too, for Buttercup. Sounds like our lives are pretty similar! How long have you been a CL for? Even though this is my last semester at SEU, I just became a CL at the beginning of the year, and I have really enjoyed it despite the short amount of time I’ve had. I hope your experience has been the same and I think it’s great that you decided to get involved right away. Getting involved on campus is definitely the best advice anyone can give to a college student—even though it’s clichéd, it’s so true. Being part of any public provides you with a sense of belonging that makes all the difference.

    • Hey girl! Yeah that is neat how our publics match up! I have been a community leader for one semester, because I am a freshman, so I barely knew what a CL was or did until I got here. I decided to talk to Sue about being an R.A for the fall, and she said that there was a CL position for the Spring, so I jumped at the chance. Serving the girls on my hall has been a huge blessing to me, and to my walk with the Lord. I definitely agree that campus involvement is really important to someone’s college experience, and I can honestly say that if I was not apart of res-life, that my freshman year would have been dull and lifeless. It has brought so much to me and allowed me to open up to amazing girls and women of God!
