For help meeting the high standards of graduate writing, reach out to our MALS writing consultant. For help with the experience of being a MALS student, toss me an e-mail . I'm Valerie Bodell and as a MALS graduate and current ETSU employee, I’d be happy to share my experiences with MALS and help you connect with resources on campus, or find your way around Johnson City. I’d welcome the opportunity to have an informal, confidential conversation about anything bugging you. We can communicate by e-mail, by phone, or in person over lunch, walking around, grabbing a coffee, or anything that appeals to you. I enjoy hearing about MALS projects and students’ plans for the future.
