Help Available for Enhancing Writing Skills - 10/1/2010

All e-mails will be reviewed and replied to within two to three business days via a reply to your original e-mail. For this to work well students will need to be proactive, working ahead of deadlines as much as possible.

The center will be open Tuesday evenings from 5-8 p.m. and every other Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The Writing Center, located in the basement of Clare Hall, provides a comfortable and casual learning place where the goal, according to Cliff Oldham, director of The Writing Center, is to help all students "frontload their success ."
