WRIT 101 Sections for GEAR UP and TRIO
WRIT 101 is a required course all MSU students must take. One section is reserved just for new GEAR UP and TRIO students. The purpose of a specialized section of WRIT 101 is for students with similar experiences and backgrounds to take it together. The course will be held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:10-2:00 pm this Fall. Let the GEAR UP office know if you would like to take this section of WRIT 101.
