Apply to Join the Writing Consultant Staff

Posted on December 4, 2023 | Filed under General News

The Director of Writing seeks applications from students interested in joining the writing consultant staff. Consultants work with their peers on specific assignments as well as general writing concerns, and thus develop hands-on teaching experience. Most importantly, consultants help empower others to discover their potential as writers.

All majors, including those who are still undeclared, are all eligible to apply. We also welcome multilingual speakers and writers to apply.

Required qualifications include an open mind, a willingness to learn, and an interest in helping others become stronger, more confident writers. While not required, a solid academic record, strong interpersonal skills, and a sense of humor are advantageous.

Applicants must be able to commit to staffing at least one two-hour shift per week, meeting with a “matched” writer for at least one hour per week, and attending a weekly one-hour professional development meeting, held on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:30 pm. Some writing consultants also serve as grammar tutors.

To apply, please complete the application form and submit a brief personal statement and a writing sample to Professor Hart at The deadline for applications is Monday, February 5, 2024.

ACO Tonight (12/5) – Gain the Whole World

Posted on December 4, 2023 | Filed under General News

What does it mean to gain the whole world, but forfeit your soul? How does that relate to things college students strive for: good grades, friends, success, reputation, fitting in…

Tonight at ACO, we dig into Mark 8 to see Jesus’ frustration with the religious people of His day, and sometimes even with His own followers. The good news is that Jesus doesn’t give up on those who really seek to understand Him, and describes what it means to “follow Him”.

All are welcome! ACO is a place for students to explore the Bible and pursue faith in Jesus – together. No past experience or belief are necessary! We meet on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm in Ford Chapel. Contact with questions.
