Writing CenterLocated inside the Martha T. Nesbitt building on the 2nd floor, in room 2103, the Writing Center assists students in any writing project they might have, whether it is an English paper, a research paper for sociology, or something the writer is working on outside of classes. When students come to the Center one of the professional or peer tutors will answer questions the students have about writing, English grammar, MLA, or formatting, and guide students in improving their writing. The goal is the student writer becoming independent, insightful, and knowledgeable about the possibilities in writing, not just the immediate text, although certainly the immediate text is important.

Hours of Operation

Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (12:00 p.m. summer)

  • To have the tutor make the corrections. The student will make the corrections.
  • To get an “A” on an assignment. The Writing Center cannot promise an “A”.

No. The Writing Center assists students, faculty, and staff with any composition or research assignments, personal writings, resume writing, and speech and communications outline development.

Will a tutor edit my paper for me?

No. The tutors in the Writing Center assist students in becoming independent writers. They guide students through the writing process using conversation in order to develop the students’ confidence in their own writing abilities.

What do I need to bring to a tutoring session?

We encourage students to bring the writing prompt or assignment, any materials (i.e. books, hand-outs, research findings) that are required for the assignment, any prior feedback from the instructor, and any rough drafts that have already been composed.

How long does a tutoring session last?

Our session blocks are for 30 minutes, although students sometimes have specific questions that take less time. Students are encouraged to visit the Writing Center at least two days prior to the due date of an assignment and repeat visits are strongly encouraged to ensure the full development of the writing process.
