Who we are:

The Writing Center is one of the five Learning Commons Partners dedicated to supporting students in the Library. We are students from a range of majors - business to English to engineering - prepared to help you at any stage of the writing process. We look forward to working with you!

What we do:

We are dedicated to fully engaging SU students in becoming the most effective writers they can be.

  • During one-on-one, hour-long sessions, the consultant helps the student to complete an individual assignment in the context of becoming a better writer. When you arrive, you and your consultant will discuss the requirements of the assignment, set and work through an agenda, and plan the next steps to aid you in your work outside of the Writing Center.
  • Come in early in your writing process and return more than once for each paper for best results. Be sure to bring a copy of the assignment, an idea of what you would like to work on, and any legible notes or drafts.
  • To best use of our services, consider developing an on-going working relationship with a particular consultant. That consultant can become more familiar with your style and concerns so as to best help you with each new assignment.
  • Call, stop by, or follow the link above to make an appointment at the Writing Center. Please try to make an appointment well in advance, especially during midterms and finals.
