I joined the CEW a little over a year ago, and I have found it to be one of the greatest places on campus. In my field of archaeology, I work with students in a variety of environments, from one hundred person lectures to groups of five or more, in faraway places. But, the CEW is the only place I know I can go to and have a one on one interaction that cradles a relationship with students in which there is more involvement in their work. This style of communication allows me to work with students in whatever way they need. I enjoy having students that come back, time after time. I know what their class schedules are or what project they are working on, and we can have a conversation that transcends what they have written on a page. This type of interaction is hard to have in any other learning environment.
