Today we are highlighting one of our new tutors, Peyton Holahan. Peyton is a sophomore Political Science major and U.S. History minor. She was a freshman fellow at the Writing Center last year and is now a tutor! She can be found jamming to Hamilton and Beyoncé, rewatching The Office for the tenth time and drinking iced coffee at any time of the day. Come visit her at the Writing Center! 👩💻
Today we want to highlight one of our new tutors, Sara Joseph! Sarah is an art history major and communications minor. She is a sophomore from Chicago and is interested in pursuing fashion journalism. “I currently work as an editor of the newspaper, solidifying my desire to pursue this career. I also work as a tour guide (or Maroon Ambassador if you want the official title). I just recently joined a sorority, ASA, where I have found unexpected friendships. One thing that is essential to know about me is that I love steak. It doesn’t matter what kind either. I’ll take them all. 😝”
Today we are highlighting one of our wonderful tutors, Jenna Novosel! Jenna likes reading, writing, watching classic movies and memes. However, Jenna takes five classes and works two jobs so she only has time for the memes.
