The Writing Center

Writing Center Appointments & COVID-19

Beginning April 6th, 2020, the Writing Center will offer online consultations.

While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has stopped most of the world in its tracks, it cannot and must not stop the exchange of knowledge and academic growth. 

For the Summer Semester 2020, the Writing Center will be offering one-on-one consultations online for students during Summer Semester 2020. These one-on-one consultations will take place via online platforms. These platforms may vary, as the Writing Center is prepared to accomodate students with limited/unreliable access to the Internet. 

Please let us know of any technological/connection restrictions that you may have when making an appointment.
