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.
Until further notice, the Writing Center will be offering one-on-one consultations online for students. These one-on-one consultations will take place via MS Teams.
Please let us know of any technological/connection restrictions that you may have when making an appointment.
The Writing Center’s mission is to equip students with the proper tools to understand and produce English written works in a collaborative learning environment. The writing strategies practiced in the center will better prepare multilingual and L2 students for their studies and future careers. The center is a tutoring resource to help guide students through the writing process. We offer students one-on-one consultations, with lecturers, at any stage of the writing process.

Making an appointment at the Writing Center is great, but what excatly happens during the appointment?
A Writing Center appointment, or one-on-one consultation, is an opportunity for students to receive additional feedback on their written assigments. For shorter assignments, the consultant will go over the assignment with the student and ask questions concerning clarity, intention, and structure. The consultant will also provide feedback and direction concerning grammar and/or conventions.
It is important that the student to comes prepared to the meeting by having specific questions or concerns ready.
