Writing Center

Writing Center L 121D

Writing tutors work with undergraduate and graduate students in courses from all disciplines. In one-on-one sessions, peer tutors provide students with support and resources to strengthen skills. On-campus and online tutors work with students of all skill levels and at any stage of the writing process, e.g., brainstorming, articulating a thesis, developing and organizing ideas, analyzing ideas, researching topics, supporting points with evidence, citing sources, English language, planning next steps, correcting error patterns (not editing or proofreading).

  • The Writing Center is located in Beatley Library - L 121D.

Course tutors are available in many of the major disciplines, including math, modern languages, biology, chemistry, nursing, and finance. Study groups offer weekly reviews of course material in introductory undergraduate courses. In one-on-one and small-group sessions, peer tutors provide students assistance with their course work, study skills, time management, and preparation for the Math Competency Exam.

Undergraduate Conference

On behalf of the CAS Dean's Office, the Writing Center organizes the Undergraduate Conference, a showcase of undergraduate students' scholarly research and creative work at the end of the spring semester each year. Panel presentations, posters, films, and creative projects celebrate the achievements of students from all disciplines.
