Why are the Writing Staff thankful for The Learning Hub?

The month of November is time to take stock and reflect, and is also a chance to think about the various things you’re thankful about this year. At this point in the semester, most of us are aching for that two day break and a chance to visit with friends and family back home, but it’s also important to recognize the hard, good work you’ve done so far in your classes.

The Learning Hub’s staff is celebrating what we’re thankful for this month in a series of videos – today our Writing Staff share why they are thankful for The Hub!

Are you thankful for The Learning Hub? Would you like to take part in a video featuring students later this month? Come to the front desk and have a chat with us! We’d love to have you participate in our Web Series this month!

The Learning Hub’s Official Roast of Sarah Collins

We’ve been working on this project for the last several weeks, and the time has finally come to show it to you. The writing staff of The Learning Hub have put together our first official roast – and our first victim is our Writing Coordinator, Sarah Collins.

The writing tutors (present and former) were given a paper Sarah wrote for her freshman composition class, and were told to do their worst. The result is this video – enjoy!

So what’d you think? Share the roast with the hashtag #hubroast, comment down below, and stay tuned to see Lisa and Kris’ rebuttal! They’re going to talk about what tutoring in The Hub is actually like – trust us, we will not roast you!
