CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – The First Year Writing Program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi showcased an exhibit of creative and colorful narratives of dozens of students October 8-11 in the University Center, Legacy Hall, as part of the University’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. 

The First Year Writing Program, part of the University’s core curriculum, is designed to prepare students for academic writing. Dozens of students in English 1301 and 1302 classes, and volunteers participated in the writing display.

“When the group came together to decide what to do for Hispanic Heritage Month, it was my goal to get the First Year Writing Program involved,” said Composition Instructor Andrea Montalvo-Hamid.  “I came up with the writing display because it is important to showcase the writing styles of first year students at our Hispanic Serving Institution.”

Each student was asked to make a creative tri-fold board and display their own experiences with literacy. These experiences included their first memories of reading, their difficulties and triumphs, and favorite books they have read.
