The Writing Center

The aim of the Writing Center is to help you become a stronger, more accomplished writer. Our consultants will work with you at any stage of your writing process in any form of support you choose.

Each semester hundreds of students visit our consultants to:

  • Interpret an assignment sheet, talk through ideas, or discuss course readings.
  • Keep writing styles focused, concise, and organized.
  • Acquire research strategies, integrate scholarly sources, and apply proper documentation.
  • Improve editing and proofreading skills, expand vocabulary, and better understand technical conventions of academic writing.
