General Purpose: To persuade Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to join a Greek organization during their time at Purdue University. Thesis: I would like to urge all of you to consider joining a Greek organization during you time at Purdue. e . Introduction: A. Attention Getter: I’m a loser. It’s true. I’ve lived in Lafayette my entire life and here I am in Lafayette for college. I moved across the river…wooo big step, don’t you think. I mean half of my high school came to Purdue, but somehow every Friday and Saturday night last semester I found myself sitting in my buddy’ ie s room trying to figure out what to do. We would think about seeing a movie, but then decide two good looking guys like us seeing a movie together on a Friday night might seem a little a strange. Then we would think about getting a case of beer, but neither of us is 21. Somehow we would end up playing Mario Kart 64 until 12:30, order some cheese stix and call it a night, but this semester, everything changed. Good! B. Relevance: As college students you all need a place to live, a place to have fun, and of course you need friends. In a Greek organization you can get all of this. Good! C. Credibility: This semester I’ a m pledging at Delta Upsilon fraternity and having a blast. Good! D. Thesis: So, I would like to urge all of you to consider joining a Greek organization during you time at Purdue. (Give a preview of your main points here) because it can help you academically, help you become a leader, and improve your social skills. Transition: According to the Intrafraternity Council of Purdue, or IFC, “The Greek Community at Purdue University strives to maintain a balanced life based on our four principles: scholarship, leadership, service, and friendship,” I would first like to talk to you about the scholarship part of this statement. Good!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
