Workshops

We offer a variety of workshops each semester. Each work is typically 50-minutes and offered during U-Hour, but keep a look out for other workshops dates! From each, you can expect a quality and fun presentation, a chance to apply the lesson to your work, and resources to take with you.

Our workshops cover many topics. Some of these include:

Genres
Personal statements for scholarships, personal statements for graduate school, This I Believe essays, literature reviews, annotated bibliographies, research projects, and more!

Grammar
Comma splices, fused sentences, fragments, sentence structures, subject-verb agreement, and more!

Formatting
APA, MLA, CSE, Chicago, and ASA!

Writing Process
Braistorming techniques, revision techniques, editing techniques, paraphrasing, discovering your writing process, working with research, and more!

Critical Thinking
