Students


What does Georgia Southern! Eagles! Write! Write! Write! mean for you?

  • It does not mean just “more writing.”
  • It does mean engaging in writing as a process, to sharpen your ideas, and develop you as a writer in your chosen field of study.
  • It does mean writing that prepares you for the demands of graduate school and the workplace – writing that is relevant to you!

What do potential employers, hiring Georgia Southern’s graduates, say about effective writing?

“Writing is important to every aspect of employment at our company. It is the first impression made on our clients and customers so it is imperative that staff have exceptional writing skills as a base requirement for their positions.”

“Good writing skills and communication skills can often rise above a particular skillset. So, if an employee is a good writer and an effective communicator [they] may be promoted before another employee of similar or even greater skill because typically writing denotes someone who is willing to pay attention to details.”
