Hello! I just joined this blog and thought perhaps I should introduce myself. My name is Andrew Rihn. I am a 24 year old undergraduate at a regional campus of Kent State University. This is my fourth semester working in the writing center here under Dr. Jay Sloan. My main writing center interests are our use of metaphors, and the more overtly political work of the writing center, specifically related to social justice, like anti-racist work or addressing social privileges.

Outside of the writing center, I am an English major with minors in Writing and Women's Studies. I like writing poetry and reading biographies. I am happily coupled with my significant other and we live together with a dog and a cat. A few of my idiosyncrasies: I can play the ukulele and I have an obsession with the presidency of Richard M. Nixon.

Anyways, I love the blog, and hopefully I won't bring the content-level down too much!


  1. Welcome, Andrew!

    I, too, bask in the glory that is Nixon. Perhaps in a different way, however. I mostly just like to tell people I'm voting him as a write-in.

  2. Welcome, Andrew! Thanks for joing in the conversation!

  3. That would be JOINING--or maybe I meant JOYING...

    Dale - Generally, "glory" isn't the word that comes to mind when I think of Nixon. It's more like rubbernecking past a car crash for me.

    Alisha - I'm glad to have joined. . . or joyed.

  7. Welcome!

    I have been a "poster" on this blog for a while now, but I seem to be having major technical difficulties joining.

    It's exciting to see people from new schools join in!

  8. What problems are you having, Mandy?

    Mandy - Glad to be here. It is definitely exciting to be able to read the experiences of tutors from other campuses.
