Meme of the Week #11 – Calvin and Hobbes

This week’s contribution comes from Writing Specialist Sheldon Hentschke:

Calvin and Hobbes was always my favorite comic when I was a kid, and it still is now that I’m a slightly larger kid. Looking back on some of these comics, I think it would be…interesting, shall we say, to see Calvin at the Writing Center. I think he could benefit from a few sessions here, though.  Let’s take a look at some comics (additional comics can be found here):

In the example above, I think Calvin must have gotten his hands on a few academic journals; he’s not entirely wrong about certain circles of academia. Don’t forget: writing is all about communication! (So I don’t recommend taking Calvin’s advice here.)
Don’t get stuck in that bubble of last-minute panic like Calvin! We can help you at any stage of the writing process, including planning and pre-writing!
I wish grad school were this easy. One body paragraph does not an essay make.
Of course, Calvin isn’t the only comic character who might enjoy a trip to the Writing Center…
And lastly (though not Calvin and Hobbes), behold Bizarro’s “official” magazine of the Writing Center, where you can find all of our blog posts in print!
