THE R€C WEEKLY
April 5, 2013
This year, the Writing Center is lucky to have
fourteen Northeastern University students and
two graduate students working on campus. The
fourteen undergrads, Senior English majors in
Professor Neil Lerner's class, are completing a
practicum at RCC. The graduate students are
volunteering their time and professional
expertise to support the center in many ways.
The students are working closely with Prof. Judy
Kahalas, Writing Center Coordinator, and Prof.
Quentin James, Evening Associate and Summer
Coordinator, to develop additional workshops
for students. They are also engaged in tutoring
and classroom support.
