Free Writing Support…
…in every major, in every class, from the day you arrive until the day you graduate.
Our mission is to provide timely, theoretically grounded, and pedagogically sound writing programs and resources for the campus community.
What can you learn?
Regular visits to the Writing Center will help you
- identify and discuss current challenges in your writing,
- develop your critical and creative thinking skills,
- develop a language for talking about writing and ideas,
- see growth trends in your writing style and skills over time, and
- build confidence in your writing and independence as a writer.
Even just hanging out in the writing center when you study puts you in proximity to other people working with ideas, language, and style, as well as resources that will help you grow as a writer and thinker.

- one-to-one consultations in reading and writing, held face-to-face or online
