Writing Center to open Sunday, January 27th


Contributed by Jaime Warburton

 The Writing Center is a free service available to all members of the Ithaca College community who wish to work on their writing. Sign up for conferences at ithaca.mywconline.com

 The Writing Center aims to help students from all disciplines, backgrounds, and experiences to develop greater independence as writers.  We are committed to helping students see writing as central to critical and creative thinking.  

In a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, writers at all levels participate in one-on-one conferences with trained student and faculty tutors to work on effective strategies for all aspects of the writing process. Topics explored in these conferences may include

o   the generation, organization, and focusing of ideas

o   understanding assignments and readings

o   comprehensive rewriting of drafts

o   sentence structure and style

o   grammar, punctuation, and spelling

o   research and note-taking methods

o   source documentation

We offer these services for students in all disciplines: humanities and sciences, business, health sciences and human performance, communications, and music. In our conferences, we encourage students to develop confidence as independent thinkers and writers. This means that we will not revise or correct papers for students, but instead will help them learn how to do so for themselves.

Hours: Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM; Sunday through Thursday from 7 PM -10 PM. 

Limited hours begin the evening of Sunday, January 27th, and regular hours begin the evening of Sunday, February 3rd. 

The schedule can be viewed and appointments made by visiting ithaca.mywconline.com or the hub at apps.ithaca.edu
