What does TRAC mean to you?
Throughout gradeschool, the importance of writing well was always highly emphasized. Essays, research papers, speeches, and debates all played key roles in my academic development. Thus, when I decided to pursue a degree in civil engineering I determined that I would not abandon writing in my pursuit of math and science, but rather seek to improve in both areas - using each to further my understanding of and ability to apply the other. And this is exactly what the TRAC program seeks to do. As a result I am thrilled to be a part of team of TRAC Writing Fellows, as we seek to work with and encourage our fellow students to strive for excellence in writing, no matter what their major.
