Thomas

Hi, my name is Thomas! I love being a WRIT consultant because it combines my love for English, and my passion for helping people. I am a member of the Delta Night Garden Poetry Club on campus, and I love all kinds of writing. 



Sarah


Hi, my name is Sarah! I love being a WRIT Center consultant because it combines my love for writing and helping others! I love to write about the humor of daily life and argumentative pieces. When I read, I love to read non-fiction books about different cultures and people. My passion for English, Spanish, and politics pushes me to pursue a career where I can use the power of language to improve the lives of others.



Jesse


I'm Jesse, a WRIT Center consultant and computer programming major. This is my seventh semester here at the WRIT. While my major may not be English, I have always had a passion for writing. I love working at the WRIT Center because it gives me an opportunity to share my passion with others and even help them to improve as writers! I’m a huge fan of classical literature, with a special love for classic horror. I especially love the works of H.P. Lovecraft. I write creatively as well, and hope to one day create a work of horror myself.

 



Aubrie

 

Hey, I’m Aubrie! This is my second year in the WRIT Center. Although I’m going into Business Marketing, I’ve always had a love for English. I enjoy working at the WRIT because it allows me to utilize my love for helping people while expanding my own knowledge on writing. Reading has also always been a passion of mine. In my spare time, I enjoy catching up on anything from The Great Gatsby to The Maze Runner.​


 

Megan


Hi there! My name is Megan and I’m new to the WRIT Center this year! While I currently have no idea as to which field of study I will ultimately pursue, I enjoy working at the WRIT because it allows me to engage my passion for English and linguistic application. When I’m lucky enough to locate some free time, I adore TED talks, learning new things, and attempting to cook.


 

Our History

 In 2008, the WRIT Center began as a volunteer service in the vending machine area of the S-Wing. The next year it became an established student service in the lower A concourse. It was known as the Writing Center Cafe and was designed to welcome student writers in a comfortable space. That same year it opened an online service for students who were unable to commute to main campus. To accommodate its growth, the Writing Center Cafe moved to the LLIC in 2010. Since then we have added reading services and begun to aid students with projects involving social media, digital storytelling, and other multi-modal components. We are now the WRIT Center (Writing, Reading, and Information Technology). During the 2012-2013 academic year, we held 2431 face-to-face sessions with 1216 students and completed 1293 online consultations for 706 students.
