GEW Agenda Form

In order to receive proof of your Writing Center visits for GEW, please print and complete the top portion of the agenda form prior to your session. Completing the form will help you identify the specific areas you would like to focus on in your 30-minute tutoring session.

Bring your agenda form to your session.

After the session, staff will sign and stamp your form. At that point, your form is ready to submit to your instructor as verification of your attendance. 

Most GEW instructors use the form listed below, but some instructors have their own versions. Please check with your instructor. 

The Writing Center does not provide agenda forms. However, you may use PawPrint in the Center, to print this form on your own.

GEW101A Saturday Writing Cafes

Statistics from Fall 2013 show clearly that GEW students who come to the Writing Center get  more A's and less failing grades.

How does the Writing Center contribute to GEW performance? 

  • Students who make a commitment to come to the Writing Center are also the students making a commitment to their educational performance overall.
  • Students who come to the Writing Center and work with our consultants receive confidence-building guidance and assurance that THEY CAN DO IT, and they take that confidence home with them.
  • The keys to college writing--the ones that separate strong high-school writers from strong college writers--are difficult to learn without one-on-one discussion. Writing Center consultants (AND professors, of course!) provide that personalized discussion that may get students over the "hump" between a C grade and an A grade.
