WRITING ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES /
COMPOSITION / ENGLISH
BUSINESS WRITING / CREATIVE WRITING

 

There are a number of different places to get help with your writing on campus, whether you are taking a writing class or a class for which you have to write.

 

With the support of an LAC tutor, you can develop writing skills to become a more independent and successful writer: understanding assignments, planning and getting started on papers, preparing research, making revisions, editing and proofreading.

 

If you're an EOP student, you may contact the EOP office (338-1085) for tutor availability for this subject.
