Volunteering with the Gauntlet has been a grounding experience. Not only, have I been able to learn a lot about writing within different categories of a newspaper; but as a volunteer, I have been given the grace and freedom to build my creativity. The Gauntlet has given me creative freedom to develop my art and writing without an academic purpose. My voice, my ideas, my experiences can all be shared within this community. I hope to continue to continue to contribute to the Gauntlet in the future.

I love the creative academic freedom I have with the Gauntlet to explore topics important to the community. I think the voices in our community have so many insights to share. Volunteering with the Gauntlet gives me the ability to be apart of this in a team environment who’s passion for such values is empowering.

Pursuing a specialized degree such as engineering, we often forget to hone our creative side and explore ourselves. Writing for the Gauntlet has given me the outlet to fully express myself and to convert my love for writing into something more fruitful that might impact a larger audience. I am loving the whole volunteer experience here and I am grateful for connecting with inspiring and talented individuals. I wish to contribute a lot more for this paper in the future.

Volunteering at the Gauntlet has allowed me to pursue writing as a hobby. I love to write—it’s cathartic to me. The Gauntlet allows me to share my opinions, views and ideas about anything with the broader campus community. It’s a very unique opportunity and I love it!

What I love most about volunteering for The Gauntlet is the flexibility that comes with it! As a volunteer, I can pitch my own story ideas, which gives me the grace to really get creative and have fun with my writing. I look forward to developing a unique voice in my articles, and to having even more fun doing something I love!
