Writing Support and Services

Writing is hard. You don’t have to do it alone! When you’re working on a writing assignment, having a conversation with someone can save you time and give you new ideas. At the Writing Center, our faculty mentors know what professors are looking for in strong writing, and we love meeting new students!

Meet with our faculty writing mentors
Once you enroll in one of our classes, you can meet with our faculty writing mentors any time during our opening hours. You don’t need an appointment; just drop by our on-campus location in LA 103 or visit our online Zoom conference. We can talk with you about any stage of the writing process from brainstorming ideas and developing an argument to tips for revising a rough draft.
