The Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free resource designed to help students at all academic levels become better writers. It is a safe, creative space where students from any discipline can receive one-on-one feedback on written assignments from well-trained peer consultants who support students in any stage of the writing process. These consultants do not “correct” or “fix” a student’s work nor do they “give” the students ideas, but instead they act as guides, walking each student through the learning process. Through ongoing sessions with consultants, students can hone their unique analytical perspective, experiment with rhetorical devices, build their academic vocabulary, and much more. Writing consultants can also help students develop writing habits that will be beneficial to them beyond academia, like navigating dense texts, considering their intended audience, and conquering procrastination.
