Welcome to the Coe College Writing Center!
The Coe Writing Center is located in Gage Annex, behind the Coe Bookstore. Nicknamed "The Mecca of Random Conversation," the Writing Center is a place for students to talk about composition, the meaning of life, or any other topic. Students can bring papers in at any stage of the writing process, be it blank assignment sheet or polished final draft, and have a personalized meeting with one of nearly 75 writing center consultants on staff. Consultants come from all majors and fields of study, ensuring that no matter the class, professor, or assignment, conferences are productive and helpful to student writers.

The Writing Center has regular business hours during the semester, listed on the right. When the Writing Center is open, students are free to come by and conference with any of the on-duty consultants. Students can also call the Writing Center at 319-399-8743 or visit our online schedule to make an appointment. Students should bring to each conference a description of the assignment they'd like to work on.

Home to an art exhibit, two zebras, and the cheapest coffee you can find on campus, the Writing Center is a unique and vibrant part of the Coe community.
