ENGW 3304 Experiences

Andrew Florendo (BSBA ’22, Finance & Computer Science minor):“My biggest takeaways from this course were becoming more concise in my writing and more mindful of the audience every time I write. [. . .] Organizing my thoughts in fewer words than usual has also allowed me to become more detailed and alert when I’m revising and editing as well.” Read more.
Celia Toro Colombo (BSBA ’19, Finance & Business Analytics minor):“My advice is to really focus on how much you can learn from the other students in the class especially those you will do peer reviews with. I think this is something that is unique to a writing course as opposed to a Business course.” Read more.
