Over 80 Students Enjoy "Coffee, Cookies, and Cramming II" Late-Night Writing Extravaganza!

84 students dropped by our "Coffee, Cookies, and Cramming II" Late-Night Writing Event on Sunday, April 27th, from 6PM-1AM for treats, tutoring, and good company while working on writing projects and studying! 

After praising our "great snacks," one attendee wrote of her experience: ". . . [T]he writing tutors are honestly the best part.  They come around every half an hour to check up on everyone and offer their assistance.  They are some of the nicest people I have ever met.  They are positive . . . , which encourages me to go to the writing center."

Great thanks to our awesome tutors--Julia, Michael, Melissa P., Brendan, Theresa, Sarah, Ben, Nolan, and Kate--for making this event such a resounding success!
