Meet the SAW mentors
I was inspired to become a peer mentor by the many positive and helpful experiences I had as a mentee at the SAW Center
I enjoy helping the Mount Holyoke community to feel good about their writing and speaking projects and presentations.
I find it so helpful to have a peer network that helps with academic writing and also supports students in their college journeys.
The most memorable part of being a SAW mentor is the diversity and knowledge that I’m exposed to — every student brings with them a new story.
As a mentor, I cherish this opportunity to learn from my peers as I help them present and convey their knowledge.
I became a SAW Mentor because I wanted the opportunity to work with and help my peers, just like my First Year Seminar mentor did with me.
I find it rewarding to help my peers as they go through the processes of writing and preparing for presentations.
I became a SAW Mentor because the center has been a huge resource for me and I want to help others in the way that many other mentors have helped me.
I'm excited to get to work with and learn from more of my peers as a SAW mentor.
I joined the SAW Center because I’ve been involved in peer-mentoring in the past, and I LOVE learning from students and their work.
I've loved finding this outlet to work with the students in the Mount Holyoke community to develop their ideas and stances on different perspectives.
I'm fascinated by the use of language to create nuance and that is one of the primary reasons I'm so glad to be a SAW mentor.
I love almost all disciplines, and I like deconstructing problems and finding ways to come at them that make the most sense and work for you.
I was inspired to join the SAW program through my interactions with other SAW mentors.
I love being a mentor because after each session I learn something new, since I am able to meet and learn from students with amazingly varied backgrounds.
Every day, I find myself saying “I love my job!” because it perfectly combines my passions for writing, public speaking, and mentoring.
Peer mentoring is essential to the writing and revision process, and I'm so glad I am able to contribute to a program that so helps me as a writer, too.
I enjoy helping other students become confident in order to discover direction and purpose in their writing.
My favorite thing about being a mentor is that I get to meet and make connections with people I may not have otherwise.
The idea that I get to know many students and their wonderful thoughts makes me especially excited to be a SAW mentor.
I became a SAW mentor because I love the collaborative interaction that SAW provides.
I was inspired by my first year seminar SAW mentor to join the program
I joined the SAW program out of a love for peer mentoring and for academic writing itself.
I believe that strengthening skills of persuasive articulation in both written and spoken presentation is relevant to any discipline.
I believe the mission SAW is to supplement class materials in terms of writing and speaking and to encourage those who lack confidence in language skills.
I love working in the SAW center because it really is more of a collaboration and exchange of ideas, rather than a traditional classroom setting.
My favorite part of being a SAW mentor is having the opportunity to connect with other students on an academic level and beyond.
My favorite part about being a SAW mentor is helping my peers fall in love with their own writing.
I became a peer mentor because I believe in the power of community engagement and conversation.
My favorite thing about SAW is that I get to meet many great people from a variety of backgrounds.
I decided to become a SAW mentor because I wanted to become more involved with the MHC Community, and the SAW center provides the perfect opportunity.
Upon touring Mount Holyoke, I immediately fell in love with the SAW Center and decided to apply to be a mentor.
