The Writing Center

The Writing Center

As college students, we are always writing, whether it's tackling that academic essay, communicating with our professors through email, or jotting down notes in a lecture. Some of these tasks have become second nature to us, while others require more thought. The Writing Center helps you turn those ideas into words on paperor reevaluate and transform the words that are already there.

The Writing Center is a free service that helps students become better writers. Our tutors are trained peers who work in one-on-one sessions that are tailored to each student’s needs. We are not an editing service; rather, we work individually with students to help them write and revise their own papers. This means that the Writing Center is open to anyone, whether you’re new to college writing and stuck on your first assignment, or a senior English major who wants feedback on your analytical essay. This also means that we accept papers at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to final revisions.

Please Note

Writing Center appointments are primarily held in-person, but to promote accessibility online appointments can be scheduled by students who commute, are dual-enrolled, or are in quarantine. We also welcome walk-ins but may not have an available tutor.
