Writing Center

The Writing Center offers individual tutorial assistance to students on any college writing task, from papers and lab reports in any stage of completion to resumes and appli­ca­tion essays.  Open evenings on the main floor of Leyburn Library (Room M11), the Center is direct­ed by an English Department faculty member and staffed by juniors and seniors in various major and minor fields chosen for their superior writing and teaching abili­ties. 

Writing tutors do not proof­read or edit student work; rather, they help students analyze and strengthen their own writing process so they become more articulate and confi­dent.  In keeping with the Honor System, students who come must acknowledge Writing Center help on any project they submit for a grade.
