What's New at The MAX Center

Alya Ansari '19, a MAX Center Writing Tutor and First-Year Course Writing Assistant, made the following video for the documentary-film module of her Fundamentals of Video Production (MCST323) course. 

In the video, MAX Center Writing Counselor Jake Mohan discusses the challenges students encounter when writing in higher education, and how the MAX Center strives to help them navigate Macalester's writing culture.
