Colleges propagandize their ads, websites, emails and letters to get students to attend their college, Mark Edmundson asserts “Universities need to attract the best students in order to survive in an ever more competitive market”(43); however, when students attend, their expectations are not like the media shows. Colleges are prioritizing more of their time and money to attract students, rather colleges should prioritize their time and money towards bettering the students education. An earnest student would pay less attention to how the university looks like, instead an earnest student would look into which universities offered the best programs and classes. For students, college has become a place where they can kickback and chill in, preferably it should be a place for students to experience and find new discoveries. Although it is important to have a college that provides a warm atmosphere, it is also equally as important to provide a college that offers variety of classes and programs which students can choose
Everyone knows once a person hit 18 and graduate high school, the next step is applying for university. What if there was another option? An individual may have passed it driving to work, walking to the store or even browsing the internet. What is it? The local Community College!
Doritos were first introduced in 1968 by Frito-Lays. From 1968 until now Doritos have used many advertisements to promote their product. Over the years, Doritos has become a successful company and is known for their different flavors chips. During 1995 and 2013, Doritos created two different Super Bowl commercials that are broken down between their target audience, historical context, media choices/composition of advertisement and rhetorical appeals. In these commercials there are three rhetorical appeals being presented: logos, ethos, and pathos.

Nike is one of the most respected brands out there. "Nike is so widespread across so many apparel and footwear categories, that right now I think their biggest competition is themselves," said by Ralph Parks who is the president of the 450-store Footaction chain. He also added that, "The brand is becoming bigger than life itself." Nike has been around for over 50 years, and according the Nike website, they got their name from the Greek goddess of victory, and it is pronounced "ny'-kee." Nike, like many other companies, uses forms of elements like ethos, pathos and logos to manipulate viewers in there advertisements and commercials. Pathos is used to manipulate the viewers emotionally and uses words of emotion. Ethos, unlike pathos, is a more
Selina Jamil’s main argument in her critique of “The Story of An Hour” is that the power of the faculty of emotions has more influence over the faculty of reasoning during the act of perception. Meaning that emotions have a stronger power to influence the mind on how one perceives something. This is represented in her statement of “Revealing her own dynamic and avant-garde understanding, Chopin rejects the tradition of attributing supremacy to the faculty of reason in the act of perception, and she attributes it instead to the faculty of emotions.”(215) During her critic she focuses on Mrs. Mallard inner struggle against what she knows in her mind is socially acceptable but what she wants for herself which is not socially acceptable. Her emotions eventually win against the guilt allowing her to feel “self-assertion” in her perception against the social convention of patriarchy.
As Tim O'Brien discusses Curt Lemon's death, he effectively highlights the underlying paradoxes of a war story's truths by telling the same story in three accounts that each differ in diction, mood, tone, and sometimes imagery. For example, in the first paragraph, O'Brien utilizes a neutral, objective tone as he briefly lists the events before, during, and after Lemon's death. How so? O'Brien implicates his staunch neutrality in the middle of the first paragraph, where he nonchalantly recants, "He [Curt Lemon] was playing catch with Rat Kiley, laughing, and then he was dead." Here O'Brien seems to be playing with the audience's emotions, as he intentionally uses phrases such as "playing catch" and "laughing" to indicate vibrancy and child-like
A bachelor’s degree just to drive a taxi cab? It might be the future of many college graduates according to Marty Nemko. In a June, 2008 edition of the Chronical of Higher Education in an article titled “America’s Most Overrated Product: The Bachelor’s Degree” Nemko argues that a four year college degree may not be worth the cost, and not the right choice for most high school graduates. For past generations, it has been expected that to be successful one must attend a four year university. Two year degrees, technical, and trade schools were looked down upon. Nemko wishes his reader to learn a different truth. He wants to educate the educators who have misguided today’s youth into thinking that four years is the only successful path to take. He writes his article to alert parents and students that a four year college education is not for the majority of high school graduates. His argument is well formatted, as he establishes both his credibility to the reader and uses statistics and citations from other credible sources
Carey strategically chooses each word to build his article. For instance, he writes that “horror stories of aggressive recruiters’ inducing students to take out huge loans for nearly worthless degrees are filling the news” (Carey). In this statement, Carey carefully chose each word so that they support his claims. He compares the “huge loans” from “aggressive recruiters” to “nearly worthless degrees” to show the imbalances that for profits have. By using words with negative connotation, the reader knows where Carey stands and can easily deduce the negatives of for-profit higher education, just as Carey wants. Also, Carey uses a sarcastic tone throughout his article. This shows to the audience that he is almost mocking the for-profits and that he does not believe what the for-profits are doing is right, but also that the traditional schools are in the wrong as well. Next, he uses a few rhetorical questions to get the reader thinking. For example, when Carey is mentioning the benefits that for-profits have he says “who was more focused on public interest?” (Carey). Though this statement Carey is able to show the benefits of for-profits education while also showing how the traditional schools fell short. More importantly, rhetorical questions make the reader think. Because Carey has an audience of educated and professional individuals, he knows they can freely think. By allowing his audience to mull
We conducted a two hour interview with three well rounded Wayne state students to learn about their experience in college and how they take on everyday challenges as a college student. Two out of our three interviewers are from the APEX program and have taken part in the summer bridge. We interviewed an English major who was also one of our tutor for writing class. They talk about what is like to work on campus as a freshman and how much it really takes out of your life. They go into very deep detail about how they deal with stress when you have a paper due because you will need to take your time and relax, classes are very hard for them too and about their social life because they want us to have a good understanding of who they are as people. They all talked about their freshman year at Wayne state because we are incoming freshman and how they had to
A rhetoric analysis is essential in identifying and analyzing written and non-academic genres. In this analysis, the rhetoric analysis focuses on two genres namely, a portrait of Leonardo DiCaprio holding his Oscar award alongside the image of a tiger mimicking a “high five” sign. The second analysis is a short article by Wong that highlights Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar award and his message on global warming. “Une photo de tiger par jour” has used several rhetoric devices such as captivating images, text, and imagery to convey his message. The picture of a Tiger showing a high five gesture depicts the use of humor and evidence to inform the audience about Leonardo’s Oscar Award and wildlife conservation. The second genre provides a short background
Technical colleges and accredited universities are different in many ways. They both offer two different styles of educational experiences, geared towards different needs and learning styles of the students who are enrolling in the programs (Freeman). They both also offer continuing education and degrees for a post-secondary student, but the courses offered and the experiences gained are vastly different (Freeman). Accredited universities offer four years of bachelor’s degree and two years of associate degree while technical colleges offer associate degree and certificate. Even though universities focus on higher education subjects, academics and learning, professors do not spend as much time teaching students the skills for the specific career
Post ‘40s America was a breeding ground for information. It has been referred to as the “Golden Age” of the American University. From the Free Speech Movement started at U.C. Berkeley to the creation of the Community College system, California was leading the way into the 20th century’s second half. Federal funding also became more widespread in this period after the passing of the “G.I. Bill.” Federally funded research would lead us again into a new technological boom, and community colleges gave citizens even more access to the routes to success that higher education could give.

In the words of Naomi Enevoldson,“Being Socially Responsible means that people and organisations must behave ethically and with sensitivity toward social, cultural, economic and environmental issues”(Naomi Enevoldson - Social Entrepreneur, 2017). Social responsibility is a fine practice performed by a body to fulfil the desideratum of the society. People believe that being socially active is a great thing to do in today’s life, that is the statement with which I agree but on the contrary, I believe that being socially friendly is also one of the most important things one should do in this era.It is not only a responsibility of the people, but also a moral
