Adrie

Hi. I'm a senior with a double major in political science and philosophy (law, ethics, and politics specialization). In my free time, I like to watch movies, listen to podcasts, talk about music, and take long naps. When it comes to writing papers, organization and thesis-writing are my specialty! If you would like some help with organization, thesis-writing, brainstorming, or pretty much anything else grammar-wise, I've got you covered. I'm looking forward to a great semester.

Alec

Hi! I’m an English writing major with a minor in journalism. Creative writing, effective writing, and structure are my passions, as well as just about anything interesting. I moonlight as a game developer, and I write fantasy, sci-fi, and horror when I’m not talking with friends. Some of my favorite movies include Donnie Darko, The Conjuring, and Inception. If you ever need help with abstract thinking or writing outside of school, let me know!

Alex

Hello! I’m pursuing a degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing. I specialize in word choice, tone, and forming introductions/conclusions. Any type of paper is welcome with me, from CH essays to psych term papers. I project whatever mood you’d like for the consultation. If you want to have a bubbly encouraging consultant, I can be that. If you want a more relaxed and quieter consultant, I can do that too. When I’m not at the Writing Center, I can be found discovering new tunes for mixtapes, writing an original work, and building stamina at the gym.
