If you've ever said, "I wish someone else were available to look at this paper before I hand it in" or "I wonder if my writing will make sense to anyone else," then the Writing Center is for you!
At the Writing Center, writing assistants work with students in a personal, one-on-one environment, helping students improve writing basics such as punctuation, structure, and documenting sources. In addition, they identify areas of strength and weakness, and solve problems with written expression. The goal is to help students improve their writing skills and become more proficient in reviewing and revising their own work.

The Eastern University Writing Center is committed to equipping students with lifelong writing skills and, accordingly, desires to facilitate student learning rather than merely to "edit" student papers. We have a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and compassionate staff who enjoy talking to students about their ideas and writing. In fact, you can visit the Writing Center at any point in your composition process--from brainstorming to documenting sources to final editing!
