In addition to offering help through tutoring sessions, we also have a number of handouts and videos on using MLA, APA, and CMS, along with general writing tips. Our tutors offer writing workshops every semester as well.

Most semesters, the Writing Center offered a series of in-person Friday writing workshops for students. The topics include "Writing with Academic Integrity," "Using APA, 7th edition," and "Using MLA." Led by a Writing Center tutor, these sessions give an overview of the topic, provide hands-on exercises and activities for the participants, and include small- and large-group discussions.
This Fall semester, we have created interactive videos based on these presentations and put them online for student and faculty use. Each video, led by a tutor and featuring writing prompts for students to complete, runs about 40 minutes.

Every winter, the Writing Center hosts a faculty member talking about his or her writing process: not just why they write, but how. These workshops give students an opportunity to listen to a well-respected academic discuss how they handle the demands of writing and research in their field.
