Cost to own a car

By c0rbs001

Owning a car has become more expensive over the years. As a college student when I think about owning a car the only cost that factors into it for me is paying for gas; however, there are so many other things factoring into it, making owning a car very expensive. I have chosen to display this by creating a “pie like” chart in the shape of a car to show the distribution of the annual cost of owning a car. The sites that I got the statistics from were both collected in 2010 and based on the average of a small, midsize, and large vehicle. I, however, decided to leave out the cost of value...

Rising Stress in College Students

By hl2990

About a month ago I read an article in The New York Times that discussed how stress levels of college students have reach record high amounts. I was interested in conveying this information because of its relevance to the Mary Washington community. Often students can be heard complaining about 3 tests in one week, or important assignments they are worried about getting an A on. Despite preparation efforts that students put in to their work, sometimes it is not enough because there is simply too much to do. This stress is multifaceted; it comes from part-time jobs, pressure to get top...

The Senior Visitors Program

By rocknroller22

During the begining of this semester before things got really crazy I volunteered with the Senior Visitors Program and applied of what I learned in this course to what I was doing for them. I interned with the Senior Visitors Program last semester and developed a pretty strong relationship with the people I worked with and became deticated to pay things forward to Mental Health America especially since they help out so much with my Bi-Polar brother. The rest of the challenge here is evident since it combines both images and text. ENJOY

Stressed out to the Point of Pulling Out my Hair

By rocknroller22

Why these specific images?
When I sat down to work on the information project I turned to a dear old friend Microsoft Publisher, which I have worked with when it comes to advertisements for events I have put together. The image I created by provided a juxtaposition of images one that offers hope and one that offers despair and a sad reality sort of wrapped up my current feelings toward procrastination and uncertainty. I had procrastinated horribly on not only this assignment but a number of assignments four other courses I was taking. With a severe case of senior-it is and on top of...

Hays Code

By b4ssm4st3r

I wanted to do something related to my Senior Thesis for this project and I decided to focus on the Hays Code. The reason why I picked this is because it is kind of confusing to understand because of all the changes and because Hollywood ignored it for a lengthy period of time. The problem with visualizing such a complicated topic is well... visualizing the layout. In a way I wish I had put more thought into this one because I am not completely happy with the result.

For one thing, it looks to busy for me for some reason. I attribute this to the cartoons I had found, in a way they...

How Much Sodium Do YOU Ingest?

By mooomooo04

Ever since I read an article on a health food and diet website about sodium and how it can cause health problems I have been carefully monitoring the amount of sodium in the foods that I eat. I check the back of just about every package, carton and every menu to make sure I stick as close to the 2,300mg recommended serving as possible. You would be surprised at how hard it is to follow the FDA’s guidelines. For instance, an example I used in my project was pancakes. A serving of pancakes from a fast food restaurant comprises almost half of your total daily sodium. Also, before I went...

Childhood Obesity

By annie.bru

My goal for this infographic was to help people become aware of the alarming rates of childhood obesity with just a few key numbers. As a nation, obesity is a huge problem for many adults, and poses even more threats to children.

I really care about health and fitness, so I figured out fairly early that fitness would be my focus for the infographic. I looked into different health statistics, and was struck by the statistics about childhood obesity in the United States. I used “F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2010,” a report on obesity done by healthyamerica.org,...

The Dream Act

By Mena

After two attempts to pass the Dream Act, both times were unsuccessful. The first attempt for this act was August 2001, and the second attempt was March 2009, both ended up having new revisions made to the original act. With the failure of passing this act million of good students are being denied basic opportunities for higher education. Every year about 65,000 undocumented immigrants graduate from high school. Most of the students who graduate are on the honor role, take part in leadership roles, are star athletes, but all of them have a thirst for knowledge. The majorities of these...
