What does TRAC mean to you?

 

I have always been avidly drawn to the written word, as it is the most effective way to articulate the full complexity of human thought. As a TRAC Writing Fellow, I have the opportunity to spread this appreciation for the written word. Through my contribution to the development of peer writing, as well as my assistance and collaboration with professors, I can practice the skills I have cultivated across the Lehigh community. For me, the program's attraction lies in its inherent understanding of the importance of writing in the modern world-an importance that is often undervalued or overlooked-and its intrinsic insistence on mutually cooperative and beneficial relationships between peers and mentors.
