Amanda Edmonds 1/30/2013 Eng 101 Rhetorical Analysis The Free Expression Tunnel The free expression tunnel is a place provided for students of North Carolina State  University to freely express themselves by use of art and graffiti. While the main goal of the free  expression tunnel is to prevent students from vandalizing the campus elsewhere, it also serves as  an outlet for students who choose to voice their opinions and thoughts through art The rhetorical situation of the free expression tunnel is easily identifiable. The various  paintings and pieces of art located in the free expression tunnel appeal to the students of North  Carolina State University. The free expression tunnel shows students that NC State accepts  diversity because anyone is allowed to utilize the tunnel, regardless of their background. Also,  the variety and diversity of the art found in the tunnel shows the students that the school accepts  everyone, because they are able to create whatever they would like without the need of  judgement or approval from someone else.  NC state, the “author” of this rhetorical text, otherwise the free expression tunnel, wanted  to give the students a place to come together regardless of differences and express themselves.  The free expression tunnel targets the students of NCSU, because that’s who the tunnel was  meant for. The purpose of the tunnel was to give a place for students to freely express themselves in a place where anything will be accepted. NC State is a school that prides itself on diversity.  The school is a very big advocate for cultural diversity, so the free expression tunnel was a great  way to show that. Students are allowed to put anything on the walls. From uplifting statements  about their race or religion, to statements about their school pride or different social events. The  Amanda Edmonds 1/30/2013 Eng 101 Rhetorical Analysis free expression tunnel truly exemplifies diversity, because it literally shows students and their  messages/artwork being able to coexist in one environment. The artwork inside of the free expression tunnel appeals to pathos. It evokes a sense of  belonging, as well as a sense of freedom. The free expression tunnel is centrally located on the  campus. It gives students from different areas of the campus a central meeting place, and also  allows students to access different areas of the campus. The central location of the free  expression tunnel also appeals to pathos because it allows the students to feel a sense of  connectedness. No matter what area of the campus the  students may live, they will still be able to interact with students from different areas of the  campus. Feeling a sense of connectedness also allows the students to feel like the student body at NC State is a family. NC State also prides itself on being a big school with a small school feel.  This means that although the school is very large, students should still be able to feel connected  to the student body. Feeling connected to the student body is what makes students feel like they  are a part of a family.   While the free expression tunnel easily appeals to ethos, it also appeals to logos, but in a  different way. NC State is a school that is big on diversity. “By definition, NC State reflects  diversity because it comprises a community of individuals from varied backgrounds and  demographic categories; it encourages, accepts, and values a diversity of people and ideas; it  seeks to promote an environment where equity, respect and understanding represent the norm in  the campus climate”­ NCSU Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity. The free expression  tunnel is a product of NC State’s statement on diversity. As previously stated, the free expression tunnel is a place where people of different backgrounds come to design various pieces of  artwork. It exemplifies how NC state feels about diversity since it is open to everyone, and there  are no restrictions as to what can be painted or put on the walls. It is supposed to be a place  where students can freely express themselves without judgement or exclusion from anyone.   Since it’s a place where everyone and their ideas and values are accepted, the free expression  tunnel can be thought of as a monument of diversity.  Being a student of a minority race at NC state, I personally feel that it can be very hard to feel like NC State is accepting of diversity. Especially when the student body here is a dominant  race, and I hardly ever see people that I can identify with in regards to race. This is why the free  expression tunnel is important. I feel that the free expression tunnel is something that the school  dedicated to its students to show that they accept diversity, and to legitimize the statements that  they’ve made about being accepting of diversity. Although the student body may not seem very  diverse to me at times, I know that I am always able to look at the free expression tunnel as proof that NC State loves diversity. Not only does the free expression tunnel serve as proof of  acceptance of diversity at NC state, but the people inside of the tunnel do as well. I always see  people of different backgrounds inside of the tunnel every day. Therefore, the free expression is  literally an artifact that exposes me to the diversity on campus. Lastly, the free expression tunnel appeals to ethos. Although it is mainly used for graffiti  and other artwork, the free expression tunnel is also used to post advertisements for events such  as sales at the book store, or club meetings. If a student happens to forget the date or time of an  event, the free expression tunnel can be used as a point of reference. A couple of weeks ago, I  asked my friend if she wanted to go to the gymnastics meet with me. My friend, who loves  watching gymnastics, didn’t even know there was a meet happening that day. When she asked  how I knew about the gymnastics meet, I told her about how I saw an advertisement for it inside  of the free expression tunnel. I used the free expression tunnel to back up my claim that a  gymnastics meet was happening that day. Once my friend knew I saw an advertisement in the  free expression tunnel for the gymnastics meet, she knew that I was being serious. Overall, the free expression tunnel appeals to pathos, logos, and ethos. It makes students  feel a sense of belonging and connectedness, shows the students that NC State accepts diversity,  and serves as a point of reference in regards to campus events.
