5. How long did it take you to research and write it? What was the process like?
Honestly, it was so easy. In addition to the introduction, the initial document had very basic headings like employment, housing, on-campus resources, and food.
I didn't write the whole thing myself. I set it up as a Google document and Griffin St. Onge was one of the first persons to contribute to it. Then, other people just filled in the rest. Some of it was pulled from university websites because a lot of that information is decentralized, and putting it in the guide was helpful because all the resources available were listed in one place.
Some of it was anecdotal. For example, some people would write things like "I tried this recipe and it's a good, cheap receipe for people to use" or "I work this job and it pays this much and the hours are pretty flexible". There were so many other people who contributed and I have no way of tracking all of them.
