Writing Center Hours (summer term):
Monday & Wednesday: 9:00 -10:30 a.m.; 1:00-5:00 p.m.
Tuesday & Thursday: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Personal assistance with all stages of writing a paper for Writing, Speech, Psychology and other courses.
Explanations and help with grammatical terms and the mechanics of writing.
You may sign up for three hours per week. (Sign up sheet is on the door.)
Make certain that you know your assignment. Listen to your instructor in class, ask questions, and read any handouts or assignment sheets. Go to your instructor's office for consultation if needed.
Bring your assignment handouts and/or textbook.
Bring some kind of beginning to your paper or project: notes, outlines, partial drafts or complete rough drafts.
Make sure your written work is double-spaced for editing.
Please realize that writing a good paper takes time, so plan ahead. Last minute miracles are not likely to happen. Do not bring stacks of reading material that you have not read and expect the lab instructor to read and put it together for you in a paper.
If you have an appointment that you cannot keep, erase your name from the sign-up sheet or call the lab and cancel the appointment.
Help sessions can be for an hour or a half hour with a maximum of three hours per week per student.
If your schedule doesn't allow you to use the lab during my posted hours, I will try to accommodate you at a different time.
If you do not have an appointment, you may drop in if someone else is not scheduled.
The Center offers help and advice; however, you still have to do the work.
