University Writing Center is Open!

September 25, 2012 at 1:34 pm

The University Writing Center’s hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.  The Center offers over thirty hours of tutoring per week, and while we will accept walk-ins, students should call 503-5883 for an appointment to guarantee they will be able to meet with a tutor.  If no tutors are available, the Writing Center staff will be able to guide students to useful resources on the Writing Center website.

Tutoring sessions are typically geared around one of five stages of the writing process:

•       Brainstorming and Planning

•       Drafting and Organizing

•       Basic Research and Integration of Sources

•       Documentation and Format

•       Revision and Editing

On making an appointment, students should know what stage of the writing process they would like to work on.  In addition, students should bring a copy of their assignment to the tutoring session.  Contact Brock Adams, director of the Writing Center, if you have questions or need additional information, at  The University Writing Center and Media Lab has seen some aesthetic improvements since last semester.  If you haven’t been by in a while, drop in and check it out!
