2016-2017 Undergraduate Catalog

Northwest Writing Center

Located on the second floor of Owens Library, the Northwest Writing Center offers tutoring to students wanting to become better writers. Any undergraduate or graduate student, staff or faculty member may visit the center or call (660) 562-1480 to reserve an appointment. Walk-in appointments are also welcome. Graduate Assistants and Peer Tutors will assist with any kind of writing task: essays, reports, research papers, letters and other assignments. While the Writing Center is not a professional editing service designed to proofread papers, tutors will gladly guide writers through prewriting, revising and editing strategies designed to develop a writer’s skills. The Writing Center also provides small group tutoring and standing appointments. Finally, conversation partners are available for students wishing to further develop their speaking skills.
