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.
