I got an email a few days back from Fern Kory, the Assistant Director of EIU's Writing Center , explaining that Eastern is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Writing Center. Congrats to the Writing Center, all of its Directors, past and present for creating the Center and developing opportunities for graduate students to help other students to become better writers. The assistantships sure help out financially, but the experience gained is even more valuable. My own experiences in EIU's Writing Center helped me co-direct Moraine Valley's Writing Center for a few years while I taught there.
Here's to the next 25!
