The Writing Center
The Writing Center offers both in-person and online tutoring. Click here to see our schedule and to make an appointment.
When making your appointment, please (1) indicate if the appointment will be online or in person and (2) include a link to your paper using Google Docs. If your appointment will be online, the tutor will email you a Google Meet link for that appointment.
Tutors will still be available for drop-in tutoring in the Writing Center if no one has scheduled an appointment for that time. We are on the second floor of the library.
The Writing Center provides a place where students and tutors can talk about writing. Our goal is to help students take control of their own writing, develop confidence, and write effectively. To that end, we look at writing at any stage of the process - from brainstorming and drafting to final editing.
If you want to use the Writing Center, you can either sign up ahead of time or just drop by. It's helpful if you have a copy of the assignment sheet and what you’ve written, but we'll work with whatever you bring. Sessions usually last for about 30 minutes, though students can sign up for longer periods of time. You and the tutor will read over the paper together and then address any questions you have and any problems or issues we see. After the session, the tutor will fill out a form letting the professor know that you came by.
Come by with any kind of writing: papers, personal statements, or job application letters. We're here because all writers can benefit from talking about their writing, and everybody writes.
Located in Kresge 205, the center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. most Saturdays. See the calendar for more details. Students with questions may contact Prof. Sarah Huffines, director of the Writing Center.
