The Writing Center offers supplemental writing instruction to the entire Mount Saint Mary College Community, supporting students, staff, and faculty.
How We Do It:
For students, the primary way to use the Writing Center is by making an appointment for a writing consultation with one of our specially trained Writing Center tutors. Using our online scheduling system, you can book a 50-minute appointment to discuss your writing and your writing assignments. Through these one-on-one consultations, tutors assist writers through any and all phases of the writing process: brainstorming and organizing ideas; structuring sentences, paragraphs, and essays; strengthening argumentation; incorporating research and appropriate systems of citation; improving grammar and style; and more!
As a member of the larger Mount community, the Writing Center also sponsors various writing-related events and programs and works closely with faculty in order to support the teaching and assessment of writing in all the disciplines, thereby working to engender a culture of writing on campus.
Why We Do It:
The Writing Center is committed to the enrichment of Mount students; we are here to equip the members of our community with the writing skills they will need to effectively communicate and succeed in all their future endeavors.
