Writing Center

The Writing Center is located on the Third Floor of Wiggins Memorial Library and is open Sunday-Thursday, 7-10pm. To allow sufficient time for Writing Coaches to assist students, the last referral will be made at 9:30pm.

Before You Arrive:

Bring any paper for any course and a trained Writing Coach will review and offer suggestions for improvement. The Writing Center is not a proofreading service, but will help you improve your writing and develop a stronger paper.

You must bring a printed copy of your paper. Writing Coaches are not permitted to review papers on a computer. Please also bring any assignment information provided by your instructor (syllabus, handout, etc.)

Students are encouraged to not wait until the night before a paper is due to meet with a Writing Coach for the first time as this may not provide an efficient session.
