Ms. Samantha Weiss

Position: Teaching Associate
Address: 439A East Hall

Samantha Weiss graduated from Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in communication. Trained as a journalist, she comes at writing from research-based background, but she has also done coursework in creative and academic writing. Her research interests include women and gender studies, comparative religions, and post-colonialism.

As a General Studies Writing instructor, she hopes to develop a classroom that fosters three main goals: help students develop their personal voice, encourage students to study their passions, and inspire students to connect with academia. She has previously tutored in reading and writing, but is excited to have the chance to teach the basics of academic writing, help students navigate complex topics, and introduce engaging sources and perspectives.
