English Writing major 

For Maggie, writing is like "a spiderweb. Good writing connects: the best ideas don't come out of thin air but instead combine two or more old ideas into something new. The best papers should be a series of connections, with the longest, strongest threads--the thesis--running through all the other ideas and tying every thought into the web. Strands of thought should touch and twist in a way that reflects the light a little differently than anyone's seen it before."
