The new Writing Center

Additionally, The Writing Center was completely renovated in the summer of 2004. With the aid of a grant from the Library Service and Technology Act, we were able to purchase all new computers. While the Writing Center is not a place to read your email or surf the web, students may revise their paper on our computers after a tutoring session.
