Attention Students: Take Advantage of the UC Writing Center!

Remember the FIVE W's from grade school? Remember THESE!


The UC Writing Center!


A free tutorial service designed to help students become more effective writers and thinkers.


Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


257 McMicken Hall


Sometimes, even the best writers need help with their college-level writing assignments.

Students who take advantage of the Center's services range from first-year students in introductory composition courses, to upper-level undergraduates learning to write in their particular disciplines, to graduate students working on Master's theses and dissertations.

And now, some other important questions...


The Center is staffed by teachers of writing who are particularly experienced in a one-on-one approach to writing instruction, and they work with a variety of students. The tutors help students who are working on developing the writing skills necessary for them to succeed in their course of study. Tutors also help average student writers hoping to become above average and above average student writers who would like to become excellent writers. The Writing Center's purpose is not merely to help you improve your writing for specific essays and assignments, but to help you develop your overall writing skills; in this way, you come away from tutorials with knowledge about writing which you will be able to apply not just to the essay at hand, but to future writing as well.


To take advantage of these services, feel free to just walk in to make an appointment, or you can call ahead at 556-3912. For more information, call Mr. Bill Zipfel at 556-1347 or email him at
