The Writing Center, located in Garner Hall 110, provides assistance to undergraduate and graduate students with all types of writing, including research paper writing, essay writing and crafting resumes and personal statements, among other forms of writing. Students have the opportunity to work one-on one with professional tutors to develop the connection between writing and knowledge while addressing specific writing problems. Although tutors assist students in the editing process, tutoring sessions ultimately seek to develop stronger writers, not produce perfect papers.
