Writing Center

Writing Coaching for Residential Students

COVID-19 Update: You will still receive the academic support you need. Residential Writing Services has provided a way for our writing coaches to connect with you digitally through Microsoft Teams. Please see the below resources for instructions on how to make and attend a digital appointment.


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.

Writing Coaching Appointments

Request Appointment

Please see the below documents for instructions on how to schedule appointments in Compass and how to attend digital Writing Center appointments through Microsoft Teams.

Instructional Documents:

Before making an appointment, take a moment to get to know our writing coaches.  All of our writing coaches are current undergraduate or graduate students who write well in their major area of study and have a desire to help others succeed.  When you come in to your appointment, bring an unmarked copy of your paper, any research you have conducted, and your professor’s instructions/rubric.

If you are unable to attend one of your scheduled appointments, we appreciate if you let our office know by cancelling your appointment in Compass.  Please be advised there is a 24-hour cancellation policy.
