The Writing Center helped me throughout the semester, improving my writing skills.

I used to be terrible at academic writing…my language was too casual, and by the end of the paper, my topic and my paper were completely different. Now with the Writing Center appointments along with my English classes,…I have a better understanding of academic papers and what professors want.

The Writing Center is a really beneficial resource to have. Even if you feel like a confident writer, it preps you better for college-level writing. If I feel stuck, it’s really helpful to be able to come in and know I can get some assistance. I think it’s great for anyone at all levels.
