Credibility statement: I have just made it through my first round of exams as a freshman in engineering at Purdue and I did not do it alone.

Relating to the Audience: I have found that there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done during the week. College life can be very stressful at some times throughout the week. All of us have, at one time, had a caffeinated soda or energy drink to stay up later than usual to finish homework or cram for a test. IV. Thesis statement: I want all of you to understand what caffeinated products are out there, what effects caffeine causes on your mind and body, and how dangerous a "caffeine addiction"
