Hello! My name is Terece Anctil and I’m beyond excited and grateful to be working with the Writing Center this year as an office assistant. I’m a sophomore here at SU interested in Strategic Communications. I’m from Portland, Oregon, but Seattle is quickly becoming my home away from home! In my free time, you can find me hunting for a good coffee shop, watching Netflix, with my nose in a book, or exploring the city with friends. I’m looking forward to being a part of the Writing Center team and assisting students in achieving their goals as writers! Come by and make an appointment with me!
Sophomore, Strategic Communications and Mathematics
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome! My name is Hannah Delsohn and I am currently a Strategic Communications major and Math minor here at good ol' Seattle U, and starting my junior year. I'm originally from Thousand Oaks, California, but now happily reside in the much more trendy Seattle. If you can't find me at the front desk of the Writing Center, you'll find me playing World of Warcraft, watching American Horror Story, and/or eating macaroni and cheese. Come say hello sometime!
Junior, Marketing and Entrepreneurship and Innovations
Hello, friends! My name is Layla, the lead office assistant here at the Writing Center and a Junior Marketing major Entrepreneurship & Innovations minor in Albers, but I don't want you bore you further with the minor details of my academic career. I am from the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i. I'm a milk tea connoisseur, a fan of DIY projects, a dog lover, a conversationalist, and a sushi addict. I like to think I'll change the world one day. I guess we'll have to wait until then to see. Come by and chat some time! Stay kind.
Sophomore, Sports and Exercise Science
Hi there! I'm Caylee, and I'm a sophomore majoring in Sports and Exercise Science. I'm looking forward to working as an office assistant this year! I grew up in Hawaii on the island of Oahu and am excited to spend my next three years up here in Seattle. A little about me... when I'm not studying, I enjoy binge-watching Netflix, playing tennis and endlessly scrolling through Tumblr. I love making new friends so don't be afraid to come over and say hi while I'm working at the desk!
Hi, I'm Lauren. I'm a junior and this is my third year as an office assistant at the Writing Center. I grew up in Sacramento, California, but Seattle definitely has my heart. When I'm not at the desk or in class, you can find me knitting hats or watching LOST re-runs. If you can't find me, I'm probably traveling or at a concert, especially if Ed Sheeran is playing! I love working the front desk, so if you're looking for writing help, come by and make an appointment!
