Tips for a Sucessful Visit

  • Be as detailed as possible when making your appointment.  The more we know about you need from your Writing Center session, the better prepared we can be when your session begins. 
  • Show up on time, and be prepared with whatever assignment you are working on.  If you are working on a class assignment, bring the assignment guidelines.
  • If you will need to print your paper for your session, show up a few minutes early so that you use of all of your session time.
  • Feel free to bring your own personal computer or device - we can work from there, too.
  • Arrive to your session with an open mind--we will use a variety of writing strategies to help you reach your goals for your session.
  • Keep in mind that being more than 10 minutes late equals missing an appointment and counts as a no-show. If you have 2 or more no-shows, appointment making privledges are revoked.
