- Writing is a process; give yourself enough time to revise your papers.
- Provides assistance with study skills, research, and citations.
- The staff will not write for you, but we will be there to encourage and guide you.
- Check out our handouts on grammar, test taking, college writing, and more!
- Staff members cannot help with exams or graded homework exercises without written permission from your instructor.
