USF Students Improve Skills at the Writing Center

Thursday, June 21st, 2012 | Posted in USF Writing Studio Blog: Tips, News, and Updates by | No Comments »

From John Strasser, Spring 2012:

“I want to thank you for all that you and the writing center have done for me. As I have stated over and over again to both you and anyone that will listen at USF, the Writing Center is the most important resource on the entire campus; the majority of academic successes that I have experienced have come as a result of the Center’s help.

I am proud to tell you that I was offered admission to The South Asia Institute within The Graduate School of Arts & Sciences at Columbia University to pursue a master’s degree this past week. I worked on my CV and Statement of Purpose at the Writing Center.

Additionally, on the same day that I received the formal offer of admission from Columbia, I won the Golden Bull Award, one of the highest honors bestowed on a student at USF. Out of a pool of 110 qualified candidates, only 20 students were chosen. This honor, too, is a direct result of the skills I learned and the grades I earned as a result of attending Writing Center appointments.”

Thanks for the feedback, John! We’re so excited for your achievements and look forward to hearing about the great things you’ll continue to do!
