Consultants

Emily Baqir Emily Baqir is a senior English (creative writing) and Communication Arts (journalism/public relations) double major. She hopes to either be a PR agent or go into publishing, whichever she can find a job in first. She could talk about her recent semester abroad in Italy, dogs, and the various fandoms she wishes she could major in 24/7, 365. When Emily isn't in the UWC or class, you can find her trying to appease her still bitter cat Ivan (he didn't appreciate being left with her parents for three months), drinking Italian wine, and plotting how she's going to meet and marry Chris Evans (Capt. America). The Salisbury native's passions include glitter, her yellow Lab Dixie ("the cutest, but dumbest dog you'll ever meet,"), crab dip, and Earl Grey tea. 
Daniel Bishop Daniel Bishop is a second-semester junior here at Salisbury majoring in Accounting. He is a Salisbury native, but plans to move to either Philadelphia, Washington DC, or New York after he graduates in May of 2017. This is his second semester working in the University Writing Center, and he is very passionate about the work that he and his fellow colleagues do. He enjoys his job here at the UWC and he puts lots of care and effort into every session when he sits down with a student. He is a very enthusiastic individual with a strong drive for adventure. Traveling is his favorite thing in this entire universe, and one day he plans to travel the world without end. He is also a HUGE aviation aficionado who is obsessed with everything related to flying. He plans on either being a pilot one day or working in a management position at either an airline or an airport. He is looking forward to another great semester here at Salisbury University!
Emily Considine

Emily Considine is an awkward turtle, a senior, and an English major, in that order. Emily’s pursuing a dream of becoming a novelist or an editor, whichever she can get into first. She also thought she had a crush on Paul Revere in the sixth grade. . . but that was before she really knew what he looked like. Her guilty pleasure is reading copious amounts of astrological horoscopes and she likes to collect stud earrings. She’s from the dirty Jerz’ too, but don’t be fooled by the Oompa Loompa pigment to her skin, writers – this tan is real.

Charlotte Covey

She is going to graduate a year early, but plans to attend grad school in order to avoid real life for a few more years. She is from St. Mary's County where nothing interesting ever happens.

During the winter months you can find her rooting for the New Jersey Devils or hitting the slopes.

Nicole Demme Nicole Demme is an English major with a concentration in laughing until she cries. She is a junior with minors in psychology, French, and Pinterest. She enjoys long walks on the beach and cats. She sometimes believes she has narcolepsy, but she is actually just a tired old grandma stuck in the body of a 20 year old.

Stephanie Wilson

Stephanie Wilson is a Social Work major with minors in Psychology, CADR, and fandoms (Marvel, DC, SuperWhoLock, etc.). She is in her junior year at Salisbury University, although her advisor believes she is a super-senior due to the amount of random credits she’s collected over her past semesters. She recently studied abroad in Scotland and she can often be found drowning in the pool at Maggs during swim practice for the school’s swim team. In her free time, she reads, sleeps, eats, watches Netflix, or listens to groups such as Pentatonix or The Piano Guys, which she is very disappointed that not many people know about. When she grows up, she plans on becoming a school social worker or guidance counselor for high school students.
