Resources

The Writing Center is a resource for all writers, not just students working on English papers. Did you know that students in any course that requires writing are encouraged to take advantage of the services we have available?  
Appointments are offered in a one-on-one session at any point in the writing process; we can help with brainstorming a topic, revisions, and final editing!
The Writing Center also provides computers with Microsoft Office for word processing and research purposes. Writing workshops are also offered throughout the semester.  ​
Our bookshelves are lined with dictionaries, thesauruses, readers, handbooks, and style guides.
