JIYW Program Assistants (PAs) are advanced UMass undergraduates studying the literary arts. PAs provide participants with an introduction to college residential life and day-to-day support. PAs also facilitate morning and evening free-writing sessions, recreational activities in the residence halls, and field trips to area museums. As members of close-knit “pods,” participants develop intense and inspiring relationships with their PAs and each other.
Detailed bios of all JIYW Program Assistants will be posted here in early 2014.
