At the start of the new term, one way students can establish—and keep—strong momentum is to take advantage of the many academic resources available, such as the university’s Writing Resource Center.
The center opens Tuesday, Jan. 22, and offers support to all students, faculty and staff, regardless of academic subject, through one-on-one appointments, workshops, writing groups, and classroom visits upon request.
Writing Resource Center (WRC) consultants are composed of SAGES/English faculty, graduate students in the Department of English and Peer Writing Fellows, undergraduate students in different majors across the university.
Consultants advise campus writers on various aspects of the writing process, including understanding writing prompts, making effective arguments, checking sources, revising and organizing drafts, and putting the final touches on a SAGES Portfolio.
The WRC’s primary location is in Bellflower Hall, with satellite locations in Nord Hall, Room 202; the first floor of Kelvin Smith Library; and SAGES Café in Crawford Hall. The WRC also offers online consulting.
