The Writing Center is open Monday through Thursday from 9am-9pm and on Fridays from 9am-5pm. Campus faculty, staff, and students may schedule a Writing Center appointment by calling (419) 530-2176. Appointments must be made 24 hours in advance.
Satellite Site: A Writing Center tutor is available at Palmer Library, on Engineering Campus, Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-5pm.
Writing Center Location: The Writing Center is located in the lower level of Carlson Library (0130) across from the Learning Enhancement Center.
Tutoring Sessions: Writing Center tutoring is available in Fall and Spring semesters of the academic year. Sessions are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on writing assignment, stage of writing, and/or the length of the written work. All ESL (English as a Second Language) appointments are scheduled for a 30 minute session.
The 60 minute tutoring session is scheduled for longer papers (greater than 3 pages), such as group projects, research papers, or senior thesis.
The 30 minute tutoring session works well for shorter writing assignments (3 pages or less), brainstorming sessions, and/or assistance with research documentation and formatting, including MLA and/or APA citation styles.
**Please Note: Individuals working on extensive writing projects often meet with a tutor more than once for more sustained guidance and assistance.
