Writing Center

Writing Coaching for Residential Students

COVID-19 Update: The Writing Center has provided a way for our coaches to connect with you virtually through Microsoft Teams. If you prefer to not attend coaching in person, prefer to not wear a face mask, or if you are unable to wear a face mask due to medical concerns, please schedule a virtual coaching appointment. There will also be in-person coaching options, but due to the sizes of our coaching spaces, 6 feet of distancing cannot be maintained in the coaching appointments. For in-person appointments, both you and your coach will need to wear a face mask for the appointment. Please see the section below titled “Writing Coaching Appointments” for the Instructional Resources on how to schedule an appointment and navigate Microsoft Teams.

The Residential Writing Center wants to help you build writing skills to serve you in your classes and future careers. Our peer coaches are highly trained to help you wherever you are in the writing process, from brainstorming to preparing your papers for submission. We offer one-on-one appointments to current residential students as well as a Writing Lab, which is a flexible environment where students can get assistance during the drafting process.

Student Testimonials

“I headed to the Writing Center to receive help on Turabian formatting in my Global Studies class. I was very nervous to write a longer paper in Turabian format; however, my writing coach gave me an excellent overview of the specific format and provided tips and tricks to help organize my paper’s footnotes. I will definitely be coming back!” – Isabella

“I loved the feedback that they gave back and how they answered the questions I had. Every time I went, I left knowing what I would do next with my paper.” – Hatangimana

“I love that this is available to me. My Writing Center coach was amazing and helped me so much. With her by my side, I was able to see my own mistakes and fix them! I’m so grateful that the Writing Center exists. Thank you!” – Anna

“It was a great service to take advantage of! I had written quite a few college level papers for high school, but it was nice to make sure I was still applying those same writing skills here. I like that it was not just format or citation issues that we went over: we over-viewed my whole paper and how it came together.” – Kristen

“The coach I spoke with was super helpful! Not only in assisting me with understanding a format I’m not familiar with, but also with helping me understand the instructions as a whole. Great experience.” – Julianne

“I always use the Writing Center when I have a paper due. The coaches are well-informed and help with the common grammar mistakes I make. They also help me have clear, concise wording.” – Stephanie
