Talk, Think, Write, Revise. Engaging in the writing process — whatever your discipline may be — helps you become not only a better writer, but also a critical thinker and an effective communicator.

Whether you are staring at a blank screen with a blinking cursor, polishing a first draft, or finalizing citations for a research paper, peer consultants at The Writing Center can help. Our undergraduate and graduate student tutors hail from a variety of disciplines (English, Humanities, Science, History, Math, Psychology) and it may be possible to schedule an appointment with a tutor who shares your major or is familiar with the kind of writing assignment you are working on.

Writing Center student staff members are also available to visit classrooms to share information about the University Writing Center. The Director is able to assist faculty in generating writing assignments and to offer services to students enrolled in all programs..

Consultants at The Writing Center can help you:

  • Overcome writer’s block
  • Understand a writing assignment
  • Generate ideas and solve problems
  • Consider audience, purpose, and context
  • Develop a thesis
  • Incorporate sources effectively and ethically
  • Organize ideas and support them critically and creatively
  • Understand grammar, punctuation, and usage
  • Apply revision strategies
  • Develop proofreading and editing skills

The Frequently Asked Questions page goes over many of the things students ask about using the center, such as how long sessions last and what to do if you miss an appointment.
