Introductory Post

Hey everyone,

As stated in my about section, this blog is dedicated to my senior capping project. For those who don’t know what “capping” means, it is essentially a class that is meant to bring everything I have learned throughout the four years as a communication major into one project/assignment. The project plans to provide college students with healthy and affordable eating options as well as quick and easy workouts. This blog is going to be the main landing point for communicating these ideas and tips. Videos, polls and other interactive media are to be used to make sure that the information provided to readers is what they want to see.

The inspiration from this project has come from my own personal experiences. After playing sports all throughout high school I was somewhat lost the first semester of college. I didn’t know how I could get the same type of exercise I experienced in high school from the gym and I certainly didn’t know how important nutrition played into the mix. The information is out there, but the overabundance of different websites and opinions can certainly be daunting. Again, this blog aims to organize and filter that information and provide it to you, the reader, all in one place.

The point of this project is to achieve a happy medium in an environment that typically pushes us to unhealthy choices. This isn’t an overnight change, but it certainly can be done! And no one is perfect – so have some Pleasant Ridge pizza from time to time, but don’t make it the staple meal of your daily diet. This blog will help you substitute healthy choices in place of those “munchie” foods.

With that being said, please answer the poll provided because I want to make sure I’m posting information that piques your interest.

Thanks for taking the time to read :)

Here’s to being healthy!
