Working with students at the CEW has been the highlight of my undergraduate career, connecting to the various unique perspectives offered by students has expanded my own understanding of what it means to be a writer. Each consult offers an opportunity for growth in all directions, at their heart they are instances of exchange.

Finding new ways to approach the writing process has been the greatest gift of this experience, it has opened up new avenues of expression for me which I can now pass on to other students.
