Student Success

Radford University English graduate student, Erika Goad, at the Writing Center


Being a Graduate Teaching Assistant has been really rewarding. Not only have I learned how to plan writing lessons and guide students through the research and writing processes that I love, but I've also been able to learn more from my mentor and teaching partner."
