Meet Our Fall 2012 Writing Consultants!

The following lovely ladies are our
Fall 2012 Writing Consultants:

Sophomore Nutrition Major

Hometown: Newark, NJ
Interests within her major: Cooking, Science, and anything else involving food!
Other activities: Swimming, Drawing, Reading, Music, Video Games, Running, Rock Climbing, SLEEPING

*I am a transfer student from Temple University, but after taking some time off and finding my way here, my credits would probably classify me as a sophomore.  I have a little catching up to do, but I’m thrilled to be here and on track at Cedar Crest as a math major.

Hometown: Quakertown, PA
Interests within her major: Teachers have always told me that math and writing are a dangerous combination because the interests conflict “too much,” and relate to totally different sides of the brain.  However, I really do love them both!  And despite their differences, writing skills can be tremendously useful in mathematics.  Being able to explain processes in proper detail allows more people to follow along and better understand.
Other Activities: I really enjoy creative writing, and the term “fiction” is probably my favorite word in sound and meaning.  I’m also passionate about art, reading, enjoying beautiful weather, and good company.

 Sophomore Biology & Pre-Med Major

Junior English Major | Writing Concentration

Hometown: Wrightstown, PA
Interests within her major: I am treasurer of both Preterite, the literary club, and Xi Kappa, the Cedar Crest chapter of Sigma Tau Delta. (And no, it’s not really that I just like money…though I do…people just think I’m responsible, I guess!!). I am also an Academic Tutor. Starting in the Fall 2012 semester I will be the junior (then senior) editor of Pitch: A Journal of Arts and Literature. I also love to work as an editor of the Cedar Crest student-run newspaper, The Crestiad.
