The Writing Center is holding a Ribbon Cutting ceremony tomorrow, Friday October 21st, from 4-5pm. You should go!
The Writing Center recently moved to the lower level of the Library, Room 129, and it is a great resource for any student looking to improve their writing skills.
You can find out more about the Writing Center on their website.
And just for fun, here are some articles on the links between utilization of writing centers and student academic achievement. Enjoy!
