    Brief excerpt from interview: That's one thing in science that everyone hates: you have to cite every little thing. Taking a lot of Writing Intensives classes in a scientific major teaches you if you don't have those citations, people can't use your writing at all. Citing makes your papers more powerful... All of these classes have helped us learn why there is that scientific format, why it's useful, why we should do it, and how is the best way to go about actually writing it.

    Brief excerpt from interview: [With] research audiences, they kind of already know the background... you can present your research as you did it. [For other audiences] it's kind of like writing a story versues writing a research paper. You really have to give good solid background on the overall picture when you're writing for general audiences or for the government, city, and state.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I just wanted to experience somewhere different. I've been interested in geology before, and I came out here, and the geology program here is amazing, so I decided to enroll. The department and the professors are very humble and very smart and accessible. If you're interested in anything at all, they're very willing to help and very willing to include you in their work.

    Brief excerpt from interview: Instructors [shouldn't] be pushovers. [When] you do these same assignments over and over. It doesn't really help you. It's just a lot of busywork. While these big long ones, where they expect a lot of you, you have to work all semester to put something together, that is what you're going to encounter in the workplace.
