Schedule a weekly session now

The Writing Center works collaboratively with currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students to help them develop and craft their writing. Usually, tutors first help writers address larger issues, such as focus, organization, and development; then, tutors assist writers with sentence-level issues, such as grammar, punctuation, and diction.  Writing Center tutors do not proofread or edit student papers.  Instead, tutors work with students to develop their own writing process and revision skills.

Attention Graduate Students: The Center for Excellence in Graduate Education (CEGE) "offers . . .  professional, targeted feedback to help improve the quality of graduate student writing."  Please visit CEGE Writing Support for more information on their services for graduate students.
