Bio: If freshmen year has taught me one thing: always be yourself. My time here at Carthage has been the most enlightening experience. I came here nervous, but now I’m content with myself. AS A member of French Club and Carthage Wave, I am always immersing myself in music or culture.

My favorite ice cream is mint with Oreos, I am quite competitive in Mario Cart, and my Patronus is a Pine Marten.

Bethany is a Writing Center Fellow.Bethany F

My name is Bethany and I’m double majoring in Environmental Science and Political Science. I’m a studious person, so I spend most of my time doing homework, but when I’m not doing homework I like spending time with my friends or watching Netflix. I have always been a very passionate person, and reading and writing have been important components in helping me express that passion. I’m always working to learn how to be a better writer, and over the past few years, I have developed a strong appreciation for the beauty of the writing process. As a writing tutor, I hope to help others write papers that they can be proud of.

I am a Classical Archaeology major with a double minor in Latin and G.I.S. When I am not drinking coffee, listening to music, or reading a book, you will usually find me translating some Latin or ancient Greek in the library. If you are in need of random facts about the past, look no further!

Carla is a Writing Center Fellow.Carla T

Greetings, I am a nursing student here at Carthage. Aside from the Writing Center, which allows me to continuously grow in my writing skills, I am a part of the Carthage Treble Choir.

Hi, my name is Catherine and I was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin. I am studying psychology and criminal justice. When I am not in the Writing Center I enjoy walking down by the lake and drinking coffee—catch me in Starbucks most days. I am a self-proclaimed mac and cheese connoisseur. My favorite type of writing is creative writing, even though I find it the most difficult to craft. My favorite book is Storm and Silence by Rob Thier but I have also read every Sarah J. Maas book ever written. I am so excited to be able to assist all writers with their work, especially Western Heritage papers.

Chloe is a Writing Center fellow.Chloe G

My name is Chloe, and I am a Pre-Med Neuroscience Major, minoring in Psychology here at Carthage. Even though I am a science major, I have always loved reading and writing creative works, and even found joy when constructing various papers for Western Heritage! Outside of school I love to lift weights and play volleyball, as well as travel (I have already checked Peru and Honduras off my list) and drink inhuman amounts of iced coffee - regardless of the temperature. After my time here at Carthage, I hope to attend Medical School, and pursue a career as a trauma surgeon.

When I’m not in the Writing Center or in class, you might spot me dressed as someone other than myself at Carthage’s Cosplay and Pop Culture Club. I will gladly look at any cats, pictures of cats, or cat memes always, anywhere, anytime (because quite frankly, I’m a bit obsessed).

Hello! I am a Music Education and Vocal Performance Major with a French Minor.

From Tower RA to Neil-Futurist and member of Carthage Choir, I am also the only French Tutor on campus so feel free to bring in your French papers! If I do not have mountains of homework to sift through, you can find me reading in my hammock down by the lake!

I am a junior majoring in economics and minoring in political science. I’m from Kenosha and I love it here, but my favorite city in the world is Washington, D.C. I am a member of Lambda Kappa, and if you see me around campus I’m probably listening to a podcast.

Rylie is a Writing Center Fellow.Rylie M

Hello, my name is Rylie. I am a Biology and Chemistry Major, though I am considering switching to a History Major. I love to read and write, though I suppose that may seem obvious considering where I now work. While I love all genres of books, I’m currently on a big fantasy kick, with my all-time favorite series being the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Besides reading and writing however, I love all types of art (though most often I dabble in watercolor and jewelry making) and going for nice long walks outside where I can think. I’ve taken and plan to take a good mix of science and humanities courses, one of my favorites so far having been my Western Heritage classes. I hope one day to either become a teacher or to work with animals.

Rebecca ERebecca E

Hello!  I am majoring in English and Great Ideas. Rainy days, lighthouses, and lavender tea are some of my favorite things. I enjoy curling up with a good book, and I have an ever-growing love of writing poetry. In addition to writing, I like to play my flute and take the train to Chicago on the weekends. I love being a resource for students here at Carthage, and I want to help you wherever you are in the writing process. Homeric epics are my favorite, so I am happy to assist with all things The Odyssey and Western Heritage!
