The Writing Center primarily supports students in all phases of academic, creative, and business communication writing projects. Several tutorial formats are available, including one-on-one sessions, special workshops, in-class presentations, and group tutorials based on specific topics and academic disciplines. Professional Writing Center staff members are trained to guide students through the entire process of writing, from generating ideas through multiple revisions with a goal of strengthening overall English language writing skills.
Staffed by trained Fellows and volunteers, the Writing Center is located on the fourth floor of the 20H building in room 405. Students can make an appointment by visiting the Center and signing up at the front desk for the desired time slot (25 or 50 minutes). Our Student Assistants support the tutors with appointments and are available to answer any questions students may have. Drop-ins are welcome, but due to the high demand for Writing Center sessions, we encourage students to make appointments ahead of time.
We also provide assistance to staff and faculty who want to hone their business communication skills.
In the 2014-2015 academic year, the Writing Center had a total of 2,346 one-on-one appointments.
Sample workshop topics in the past have included:
How to Write Thesis Statements
Tips for Time Management
Effective Strategies for Online Research
How to Avoid Plagiarism
Paraphrasing and Summarizing
How to Write a Lab Report
