Thank You for Attending Coffee, Cookies, and Cramming IV

Thanks to all those wonderful students and tutors who helped make last night’s Coffee, Cookies and Cramming such a success! We had 55 students working on projects from all different areas, enjoying the food and drink, and just generally working companionably in a warm, supportive environment. It was great fun to meet next year’s tutors as well; they threw themselves into the mix with energy and enthusiasm. Several of our terrific tutors are busy working on a photomontage from the event. Keep an eye out for it on our website, and please come join us for our next CCC! We expect to host it again in the fall. In the mean time, if you’re working on writing for any classes or for summer jobs/internships (or for any writing project), log on to our schedule at https://hofstra.mywconline.com and make an appointment. We’d love to see you at the Writing Center!

Here's the first picture from the event from tutor Michael Heiss:
