Hello! I am a nursing student in my sophomore year. I am from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, a small town characterized by its Fireside Theater and cow museum. Other than reading and writing, I love to draw, be active, and hang out with friends. Some fun facts about me? I am neither a dog nor a cat person - I love both! My favorite ice cream is mint with Oreos, I am quite competitive in Mario Cart, and my Patronus is a Pine Marten.
I have majors in Spanish and English (with a creative writing emphasis), so you can bet I love writing. my other hobbies include reading, eating, sleeping, and watching way too much television. I also have a dog named Toffee and will gladly show you pictures of him if you visit me in the center!
Hi! My name is Alison and I’m a Junior. I’m an English major, so I love writing and editing. Along with being a tutor, I am a part of Chi Omega here on campus.
I love watching silly movies, traveling to new places, and exploring new points of view. At Carthage, I am studying Psychology and Spanish with hopes of becoming a school counselor. I love serving the campus, building new relationships and exploring spirituality through my participation in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Carthage. Hard work, perseverance and intellectual exploration are some of my core values, which I hope to develop this year in the Writing Center.
I am a Physics and German double major who uses the Writing Center to stay connected to my love of the English language. Along with being involved in the clubs for my respective majors, I am active in Carthage Allies and Students Against Sexism in Society, and I am the vice president of Carthage’s chapter of Amnesty International. As and RA, I love meeting new people and helping them in any way I can. I have run a 25k and have floated in simulated zero-gravity. I love storytelling in any form including books, TV, movies, you name it.
I am a Classical Studies with a focus on Archaeology, I enjoy spending the majority of my time reading novels (my favorite being Mansfield Park by Jane Austen). My interests span the Stone Age to the Space Age, and I constantly look forward to developing my knowledge of the world.
I am a junior pursuing a biology major with chemistry and psychology minors. My passion is scientific writing but I also love helping students with all writing disciplines. When I’m not in the Writing Center, you can find me in Straz doing research, tutoring, or working as a lab assistant.
I am a sophomore majoring in English with a minor in Public Relations. I am optimistic about finding a career that involves a ton of writing but also conforms to societal expectations (which is totally achievable, despite popular opinion). I enjoy the outdoors and physical activities that are more fun than work. When I’m indoors, I am most likely watching Madmen or any other time-period drama on Netflix. Perhaps most obviously, I enjoy writing. I hope that while working in the Writing Center I can help others enjoy writing as well.
Studying abroad fall 2017
I am the tall guy with curly hair and the longboard. I am a history and psychology double major with no idea how those two will go together into a legitimate career (but I will find out when I get there!). I actually enjoy Western Heritage texts (except Plato, he’s just ridiculous) and I would love to help you with those frustrating thesis papers. My favorite things to read are The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones (notice the trend?). I am also a member of Carthage’s Fencing Club, Court of Nobility, Running Club, and Pagan Forum (Praise Odin!). If I am not in the Writing Center I am probably arguing with my best friend about philosophy or watching House of Cards on Netflix.
I am a senior majoring in English and Graphic Design with a minor in Theatre, and I live in a semi-permanent state of existential crisis. I also act as President of Students Against Sexism in Society and Vice President of Poetry Underground. When I’m not busy with writing or design work you can find me curled up with a cup of Earl Grey Tea, getting very emotional about comic book characters.
I am a sophomore double majoring in psychology and sociology and minoring in Spanish. Aside from my studies and passion for writing, I enjoy photography, drawing, being with family and friends, and spending time in nature. I always welcome new experiences and adventures, and am eager to travel and explore the world. My favorite stress relieving activity during the academic year is playing with the dogs at the Humane Society. I am a dog-lover, having two of my own named Max and Murphy. A few more random facts about me? I think dill pickles are a magical food, I take pride in using movie quotes in casual conversations, and I have worked as a pie maker.
I am a sophomore majoring in English with an emphasis in creative writing, with minors in Secondary Education and Theatre. I plan to become an English teacher in order to help others become connected to reading and writing the way I am. When I’m not in the Writing Center or in class, you might spot me as someone other than myself at cosplay club or in theatre. I will gladly look at any cats, pictures of cats, or cat memes always, anywhere, anytime (because quite frankly, I’m a bit obsessed).
I have had the good fortune to work for Jean at the Writing Center since my freshman year at Carthage. I’ve seen quite a few papers come through, but my favorites are always Western Heritage - especially Homer and Dante! I am currently a junior, studying English, Great Ideas, and French. if I’m not in the Writing Center, i might be practicing with the Merely Players, Carthage’s improv group, or spending all of my rollovers at Starbucks. if you need help finding me in the WC, look for the girl with a coffee stain on her shirt!
I am a Junior International Political Economy major with minors in Great Ideas and Economics. I am happy to help in any subject, but am especially confident with Political Science, Economics, Great Ideas, Western Heritage, and other business assignments. In addition to tutoring, I am a member of Carthage Wind Orchestra and 2017 Vice President of Pi Theta sorority.
I am an English major and Great Ideas minor. I have lived in South Carolina, Colorado, and Washington. Now making my temporary home in Wisconsin, I hope to help fellow students find their voices through writing. Because I have written a couple of books in my free time, I know all about the trials and tribulations of putting thoughts and feelings to paper - so don’t worry, we’re in this together!
I am a junior majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in Psychology. On Campus, I am the Publicity Chair for Colleges Against Cancer, and a member of the Education Club “ACES”. I love playing with my dog, paddle boarding in the summer, and drinking countless cups of tea. My favorite genres of books to read are fantasy and classics, and I would love to help you with those Western Heritage papers in the Writing Center!
Hello! My name is Nicole. I am a senior here at Carthage studying English, German, and Business Administration. When not working as a Writing Fellow you may see me around campus giving tours as a Student Ambassador. In my free time, I enjoy volunteering with Circle K, discussing world politics with Model UN, and leading a prayer group. I am also a book lover, makeup enthusiast, and dessert addict. See you around campus!
Hi! My name is Rachel, i am a junior, and I am majoring in marketing and minoring in psychology. I love all things that have to do with dogs, Disney, and the season of autumn. My favorite part of being a writing tutor is meeting so many students of Carthage and being introduced to different topics and ideas. When I’m not in the Writing Center, I’m probably in the gym or outside doing something active.
I am a junior and a member of the first cohort of the nursing program at Carthage. I enjoy hanging out with my friends, watching Netflix, napping, and drinking coffee. As a member of Zeta Tau Sigma, I enjoy spending time with my sisters and participating in philanthropic events around campus. I love helping others and look forward to graduating in 2019, attending grad school, and becoming a nurse practitioner. Despite majoring in nursing, I love to write and am more than happy to help out anyone who comes into the Writing Center!
I am a senior English major with a creative writing emphasis, minoring in Theatre and Music. Besides working in the Writing Center, I am an embedded tutor for “Introduction to Literary Studies” and “British Literary Traditions II”, the president of Poetry Underground, treasurer for Students Against Sexism in Society, and a member of the Carthage Women’s Ensemble. I love pugs, musicals, writing, Studio Ghibli films, and playing my 3DS.
I am a junior majoring in both music and psychology. As a violinist, I enjoy camaraderie in the Carthage Philharmonic; as a psychology major, I hope one day to develop the ability to read minds. Curiosity and wanderlust drive me toward the adventures of travel (I’ve visited China and India), reading (yes, Harry Potter is my favorite series), and discovering the unexplored. In the future, I’d like to become a therapist, although I haven’t settled on which specific field I will pursue.
I am an English and Public Relations double major with a minor in Theater. I love playing sports, and I am on the Carthage Women’s Basketball team. I am from Bettendorf, Iowa.
