Writing Center: Home


Welcome to the Writing Center!

If you are working on an essay, research paper, report, speech, resume, application, cover letter, scholarship essay, a piece of personal writing, or any type of written assignment... You've come to the right place! 

Whether you don't completely understand the assignment, you are just getting started with the brainstorming or outlining, you're stuck with writer's block, or you are almost finished and need one last readover - the Writing Center can help!

The Writing Center is a free tutorial service where students can receive assistance with any type of writing assignment during any stage of the process! Visit a Writing Center either face-to-face, virtually (online with video and audio), or submit your completed essay for written feedback. The centers do take walk-in appointments if a tutor is available, but, if you can, try to reserve a session slot ahead of time using the specific center's scheduling portal. 


See the tutorial videos below to learn how to schedule, edit, or cancel an appointment as well as how to attend an online appointment. Also see below for the different center locations, contact information, and specific links for each center's schedule.
