Tip for success

Dear future student in Prof. Piacente's Writing for Comm course,

There are two points of advice I'd like to give. First, something I learned the hard way: read the Washington Post every day. It is way, way easier to do briefly every day then to spend more than two hours (and it will take more than two hours) on Sunday catching up, and you'll find yourself becoming far more informed and connected to the region.

Second: take advantage of the amazing resources Prof. Piacente provides. Ask guests good questions, and prepare for guest lectures by researching the person. You'll be able to appreciate them a lot more.

Have a good semester!
Ben Goldstein
