The Writing Center
The Writing Center, located in the library, is a place where students can meet one-on-one with trained writing tutors to work on any writing-related task they face—from academic papers to artist statements, grant applications to resumes.
The Writing Center is open for appointments and walk-in hours Monday-Wednesday 10 am-10 pm and Thursday-Friday 10 am-6 pm.
Students can either drop in to the center to meet with a tutor for a 30-minute session on a first-come-first-served basis, or they can make an appointment via the website to meet with a tutor for up to one hour.
Tutors will assist students as they develop the skills of self-editing, organization, idea development, clarity and concision, and critical thinking. It is recommended that students plan to see a tutor more than once in the process of completing an assignment in order to receive the most comprehensive benefit.
Make an Appointment
Make an appointment through our booking website so you don't have to wait. Appointments are the same length as regular sessions (30-45 minutes max), but guarantee you a slot with a tutor at a time that's convenient for you. Please bring all assignment materials with you, as well as a Tutoring Form with the top filled out.
Work at the Writing Center
The Writing Center typically hires new tutors at the start of each semester, but accepts applications on a rolling basis. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application!
