Binghamton Now

Binghamton Now is a platform for thematic freshman writing online that features the work of freshman writers from WRT 111 classes all centered around the same topic. The publication is meant to demonstrate how students can write about the same topic with a different viewpoint and also to give students a space to participate in civic engagement and share their important opinions.
