Isabelle Anderson-English/Spanish TED:
Visiting the Writing Center is such a good option for students who are seeking help at any point in the writing process. I think the best part of dropping in is that the staff doesn't simply correct your paper, but we help give you tips and tricks on how to improve your writing skills which really allows you to feel more confident in your writing skills!
The writing center is a safe space for all writers, no matter their level, to improve themselves. Our goal is not to improve your grades, but to help you improve them by bettering your writing skills. We are happy to help with anything from drafting and planning, to citing and polishing up important papers and proposals. We can also help with resumes, cover letters, and even leisure writing like poetry and letters! We come from all sorts of disciplines, so whatever your subject area, we are here for you.

My favorite part about working in the Writing Center is being able to meet a variety of students with different majors. I have fun working with so many people and reading how creative their ideas can be in writing!
I love working at the Writing Center because I get to witness so many amazing writers become even more awesome. It's so cool that I am able to be there for students in any stage of their writing progress--the beginning, end, or anything in between. All of these different stages are so important to be successful in. And, even if one of us writing consultants are in a different field than you, our help is still so valuable because different perspectives can often lead to the discovery of never before seen problems.
Abby Tourison-B.A. in English:
The Writing Center is a place where students of all ability levels can come, regardless of major, to receive help, guidance, second opinions, and so much more regarding their writing. I come here to get my tough papers peer reviewed, and there’s always something that I can work harder on. Overall, the Writing Center is a safe, judgement free zone where students can receive direction on issues they have from our tutors. I can’t wait to see you there!

The Writing Center provides a non-judgmental environment where students can receive peer critiques, as well as sessions of brainstorming ideas, asking questions, and learning more about different writing processes. Our staff of consultants has such a wide range of majors, which all cover different writing styles such as MLA, APA, Chicago, etc., that it is difficult to come to the Writing Center and leave without having learned something new.
I am a Secondary Teacher Education major with a concentration in English and History. I love working in the Writing Center because I am passionate about meeting new people and helping them improve their writing skills. It is a great opportunity for students to improve their writing in any class and become more confident in their writing skills.
