The Writing Center
The Writing Center’s mission is to help students become better writers. It is a place to talk through your writing and receive feedback from other writers in one-on-one sessions.
Through these tutoring sessions, we help students learn to analyze assignments, address audiences appropriately, improve composition processes, strengthen the focus and organization of writing and improve basic grammar, usage and mechanics. We also help students become better editors by teaching them proofreading skills. Visit the writing center's website for more information.
