Individual Appointment

What to Expect

Writing Center appointments last 30 minutes and are student-centered. That means that you'll determine what you'd like to accomplish in the appointment — just let us know what you would like to focus on. During an appointment, you can expect the consultant to begin with your prompt and some questions to better understand the assignment. Students often request to work on development, organization, analysis, format, and grammar. 

To be prepared for your Writing Center session, please bring the following items with you:

  • Your assignment guidelines (the prompt), notes about the assignment, and any other relevant material. 
  • A printed draft of the piece of writing you would like feedback on (or access to an electronic copy via USB flash or Google Docs). We do have a Pawprint station in our Center, if you need access to a printer.
  • If you're coming in to satisfy the GEW visit requirement, bring your agenda form
