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
