UC Room 1119
Dr. Peguesse began her collegiate journey at the University of Arizona where she earned her B.A in English in 1989. She continued there and completed her M.A in English in 1991. Later, in 2000, she eaned her Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English. Dr. Peguesse came to the VSU English Department in 2000, and has enjoyed her teaching, her colleagues, and the campus culture here very much. She particularly likes working with students one-on-one, which is what attracted her—since graduate school days--to working with tutors. She directed the VSU Writing Center for two years, then volunteered to work as interim director for the Student Success Center, which absorbed all the tutoring departments operating for core courses. She’s lived a lot of places like Hawaii and Turkey (Air Force brat), rescued two dogs from the pound, and makes seriously delicious Vietnamese Spring Rolls.
