Writing Center

The Writing Center is a collaborative learning program dedicated to providing one-on-one assistance to student writers.  Students come to the center for help at various stages of the writing process.  In a writing conference, tutors help students clarify their thinking and develop their ideas. Tutors also help students find strategies for improving organization, grammar, and punctuation. They will work with any written piece, from essays and reviews to research papers and personal statements.  The Writing Center also provides a library of handbooks, style manuals, and textbooks for the first-year composition courses.

We're in the Idaho Commons, Third Floor, Room 323 - between the Honors Program and the Career Center.
