I am a sophomore majoring in Art and Design with a double minor in Art Education and Art Education and Art History.  If you can't tell already, I have a passion for art, not only creating it, but also studying it.  In my down time, I love to go on hikes and pretty much do anything else that will get me outside.  I also love to read and write, and the inspiration I get from these hobbies often leaks into my artwork.  If I'm not pursuing one of these interests, you can almost always find me with one earbud in, listening to whatever song has currently captured my attention.

Beatrice Crespo

I am a sophomore in the Art and Design and Glass Engineering programs. I hope to minor in Physics, Art History, and Chemistry. I approach everything systematically and am especially inclined towards technical writing (lab reports, scientific papers, artwork analyses) because I can just follow the rules and systems that have already been laid out for me. My goal as a writing center consultant is to help students take advantage of the 'rules' of writing and understand how the rules can sometimes be manipulated to fit their voice. 

CJ Davis

Imade of CJ Davis I am a sophomore majoring in English with a minor in philosophy. I really enjoy reading and writing poetry, and I have ever since I stumbled upon a collection of Bashō’s haikus when I was eight. I love analyzing literature as well because there’s so much to learn! Some of my other hobbies include watching bad b-horror movies, listening to music, and sewing. I’m excited and looking forward to helping people with their writing, and writing assignments!

Hello!  My name is Ashton Julian and my pronouns are they/them. 
I am majoring in English and child psychology.  Horror is my favorite genre of writing because I read every single Goosebumps book at my local library by the age of nine.  I also enjoy working with horses, playing video games, designing costumes, and watching movies.

Gaia McCune

I’m a junior English major, and my strengths lie in creative writing of all kinds—poetry and prose of all genres—and I am also skilled in literature analysis writing. I love all things literature and am working on a few long-term projects of my own! I also love cooking, baking, tea, fashion—anything really. When I’m not in class or in the writing center, I can usually be found reading or singing/listening to music.

It's fascinating to me how words have changed the world throughout history and continue to do so today. My favorite movie is Jurassic Park. When I'm not writing papers or reading hundred-year-old books, I work on my art, play or listen to music, and go on long walks.

I’m a sophomore Psychology major with minors in English and Women & Gender Studies.  I love analytical writing, discussion classes, and learning everything about how humans work!  I spend my free time baking, working on very lengthy art projects, watching food shows, and hanging out with my tiny cats.

Alyra Rain

Hi, I'm Rain! I'm a sophomore English major, and I love to read and write. I also like listening to music, crocheting little creatures, playing games on my Switch, and hanging out with friends. Recently, I finished the latest season of Good Omens (and yes, I was devastated)!

Natalie Reynolds

I love to explore new mediums and create whatever comes to mind, especially while binge-watching whatever my latest find is! I have an Etsy shop and enjoy selling fun crafty things that I have made (especially things I have sewn)! I'm really involved with InterVarsity and love hanging out with my friends and going on late-night trips to Taco Bell!
