Hello Scrawl Nation! This week’s episode delved into the minds of two new UCWbLers, Alex Anderl and Lauren Awtry, focusing on their first few months at the writing center. This episode really focused on thinking about the writing center from the position of a new tutor. We certainly gained a lot of insight from our two guests.
After a brief introduction to the new tutors, their majors, and why they wanted to work at the Writing Center, we played a rousing round of Word of the Day. We then played our first song of the day, “New,” by No Doubt.
During our interview with Alex and Lauren, we explored the reasons that both tutors had applied to the UCWbL, their interview experiences, and the core readings they had enjoyed and identified with so far in the quarter. We discussed the UCWbL core practices as well; listen to the podcast for a intense conversation about how much we all love the writing center.
We then played America’s Favorite Game, “UCWbLast from the Past,” where Brandon quizzed Theresa, Alex, and Lauren on facts about the writing center. Our final segment was listening to “Can’t Look Back” from She&Him, reminding our listeners that once you become an UCWbLer, you’re always an UCWbLer.
