Writing Center

The Writing Resources Center offers advice and guidance to students on every kind of written work, from notes, outlines, and drafts to research papers and application letters. By signing up for a twenty-minute consultation with a native English speaker at the Center, you can get individual help at any stage of the writing process. We ask you to identify the issues you think are most important – grammar, style, structure, argumentation, citations, etc. - and then we work with you to improve not only the paper at hand, but your writing skills in general.
