Tips for Visitors

  • Make an appointment if you can, but don’t hesitate to just stop by.
  • If you are working on a paper, consider visiting twice: once early on and again when polishing up the final draft.
  • Sign up for a weekly appointment with a consultant you like working with.

What you may want to bring to the Writing Center:

  • An idea of what you would like to work on
  • An assignment sheet (if you were given one)
  • Relevant books, readings, or research
  • Feedback from an instructor or other readers
  • Previous drafts of writing you are working on
  • Disk, memory stick, or your laptop
  • A willingness to work and learn

What to keep in mind:

  • You don’t need to have a paper to visit. We can help you brainstorm, create outlines, maps or webs, or just talk about ideas.
  • We will work with you at any stage of your writing, from brainstorming a topic to polishing a final draft.
  • You can come with any kind of reading from any course.
  • You can drop in, call ahead and make appointments that fit your schedule, or make regular weekly appointments!

“I usually do not re-read my papers too thoroughly, but this time we broke it down from paragraph to paragraph. This allowed me to look at smaller sections and maintain my focus.”
