Welcome to the Writing Center!

Our staff can work with you at ALL stages of the writing process and on papers in most disciplines. We do not edit, proofread or "fix" papers, we give feedback on bigger things like structure, organization, argument and evidence (although we will point out errors and give mini-lessons on grammar along the way). Our goal is for you to leave with a stronger paper and better writing skills.


College of Business students

Please check first with the Frank Communications Center in Papajohn for help with business course assignments.


Please note: These appointments are ONLY for students who do not already have a regular weekly session with one of our staff.


ESL students must have completed all ESL courses to be eligible for Writing Center services.
