Writing Center

Welcome

The Writing Center's mission is to help students become better readers and writers. Our goal is to "Help writers Help Themselves," so that you can improve your work overall. We offer, in a manner that does not intrude upon the student/teacher relationship, individual and group tutorials. During this, we work on issues ranging from developing a thesis to refining mechanics and documentation style.

The Writing Center is for all Armstrong students. You can come in with any type of writing assignment at any stage of the process. We can help you understand the assignment, plan your paper, help you organize and help you revise your work. We can even help you learn to proofread for your most common mistakes.

Missed Appointment Policy

The Writing Center works hard to fulfill all client's needs. Every appointment slot missed by clients who schedule them deprives others of our services. We reserve the right to refuse making appointments to any client who repeatedly misses scheduled appointments. Students will still be free to come in as walk-ins.

Faculty Resources

The Writing Center offers classroom visitations to give presentations on topics such as brainstorming topics, effective writing, conducting research, citing in specific style guidelines, or simply to inform students about our services. If you would like to schedule a classroom visitation or would like to bring your class to us, please contact us at least one week ahead of schedule.

Many professors enjoy offering extra credit to students who come utilize our services, or alternatively requiring their students to do so. If you would like to do this, please contact us ahead of time so we can make a note of what what to expect.
