Writing Center Tutors Celebrate Dictionary Day

Tutors in the Writing Center celebrated Dictionary Day on October 16. This unofficial holiday honors the birthday of lexicographer Noah Webster.

Students were invited to play a massive, six-foot square Scrabble game.Carnival prizes — rubber ducks, stuffed monsters, and magnetic games — were awarded based on the number of points scored with each word, but everyone who played won a prize.

A grand prize (a coveted Starbucks gift card!) was awarded to Ria Villegas and Jay McPherson, who scored big by joining forces and placing the word “more” on a triple word space.
