Writing Center

Regular hours: Sundays 2pm – 12am, Mondays through Thursdays 7pm – 12am.

Writing Center staff can be found in Mudd Library 101A and Mudd 052 Sunday-Thursday, as well as Tuesdays 7-10 pm in the MRC and Thursdays 7-10pm in A-House. The Writing Center provides free drop-in writing consultation for students working on academic assignments for any class and on any topic.  The Center is staffed by student Writing Associates and welcomes all writers to a private one-on-one writing session throughout the semester. Students can visit the Writing Center for a session at any stage of their writing process. Writing Associates can assist students early in their writing process by helping to clarify prompts and assignments, brainstorm ideas and topics, or develop research strategies. Writing Associates can also help students in the drafting and revising stage of their assignment by providing advice on paragraph organization, idea and argument coherence, among many other issues. Students at the end of the writing process can also bring in their papers for help in sentence-level corrections and editing for flow and clarity.

The Writing Center opens for the semester on the Sunday after the second week of classes and remains open through the last day of reading period.  The Writing Center is closed during fall break, spring break, Thanksgiving break, exam periods, Winter Term, and summer.
