Welcome back, Waynesburg!
The Writing Center officially re-opens on Monday, Jan. 23, with an enhanced schedule. Tutors this semester are offering more evening hours and limited hours on Saturdays.
We will offer in-person, online, and e-tutor appointments for all undergraduate students. Please visit WC Online for the Spring 2023 schedule. We are excited to have you back and to work with you on all your writing needs.
The Writing Center is a place where writing is explored in a cozy, relaxed, and inviting environment. Our tutors are talented, kind, and eager to help fellow students. We understand that many students are anxious or feel intimidated when visiting the Writing Center, especially during their first visit, but we want you to know we are ready to support you!
We are here for you when you don’t know how to start a paper, when you need help organizing your thoughts, when you feel overwhelmed by the task of compiling your works cited page, or anything else you may be struggling with in terms of writing.
Words matter to us at the Writing Center. Words hold the power to foster positive change. Supportive words allow others to feel accepted and welcomed in a community.
In many ways, we are more than a Writing Center. We are a gathering place for students of all backgrounds, majors, and unique beliefs. While our main goal is to help you become a confident writer, our secondary goal is to foster an environment where diverse holidays, outlooks, and individuals are celebrated.
During January, we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Chinese New Year. We also pay respect this month to those who perished in the Holocaust with the celebration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
When you enter the Writing Center, you may be greeted by quotes from famous writers, important leaders in the field of social justice, or even a few pieces of trivia.
At the Writing Center, we dedicate entire sessions to focus on the unique writing needs of each student. From brainstorming, revising, or polishing the final draft, we are here to help you.
Please join us this year, to strengthen your writing skills and meet a peer who is ready to help you. The Writing Center is not a fix-it shop where a stranger reads your paper and tells you what to change. The Writing Center is a place where peer tutors help demystify the writing process and help you approach your assignment with confidence and clarity. Stop by and see us We look forward to meeting you!
