“I love coming to Think Tank. I always get my work done, and leave happy with more acquired knowledge. THINK TANK ROCKS!!!!” –Anonymous

“The UA GWC has been the most collegial yet rigorous writing workshop I have experienced in my academic career. THINK TANK facilitators modeled the process and strategies for us during the fall, and we have been successfully working on our own into the spring. The group introduced me to people I hope will be lifelong colleagues, and kicked my thinking/writing up to a higher level of confidence and rigor. Wish I had found this resource sooner, and I highly recommend the GWCs be expanded and continued.”  Elisabeth R., Doctoral candidate; Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies

“Coming to the THINK TANK is part of my routine, and that consistency has definitely helped my study habits” – Ashley T., sophomore, Engineering
