Practice the interview skills that we’ve discussed in class. Interview a fellow student and then write a report that presents information and recommendations to your readers. This project consists of an Interview Report (preliminary draft and final draft).

The reader is looking for information about the primary concerns and challenges of students in the same major as the interviewee.
Your position statement will be something like “my interview with ________ provides insights that will help faculty to support students” OR “my interview with ________ provides insights that you should be aware of as a new student in this major.”
Your goal is to provide this information and to make recommendations for next steps.
