 Walk-In Writing Center

Walk-in sessions (M-F, 3-5) should be thought of as “minute clinics,” meaning they are designed for quick questions that take 5-10 minutes to address. For example, citation questions or questions about a single sentence or short paragraph, such as thesis statements or conclusions, are appropriate issues for walk-in hours.
