University Learning Center

Writing Center

The Writing Center provides one-on-one writing consultations for all students for any academic writing purpose. Sessions are led by faculty-recommended and trained peer writing consultants. Writing consultants help students identify areas in the draft to improve while assisting in the development of specific revision plans. Students will work on their writing skills as the consultant guides them through the revision process.

How to Make the Most of Your Writing Consultation

The Writing Center is located in DE 1056 (on the first floor of DePaolo Hall).

  • All appointments are scheduled for an hour, giving the student and consultant plenty of time to discuss all aspects of the draft.
  • Students can schedule an appointment for any stage of the writing process: brainstorming ideas for a paper, developing an outline, planning revision of a rough draft, or fine-tuning a final draft.
  • The writing consultant always responds to the student's concerns first, then works with the student to plan other ways to revise the draft.
  • Students should schedule a follow up appointment with the same consultant or another consultant at the time of their appointment.

The Writing Center is closed when classes are not in session.
