As of Sunday, the Beloit College Writing Center is officially open for the year. It’s located upstairs at 635 College Street (the brick house across the street from WAC) and is open Sundays through Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Walk-ins are accepted, but appointments are encouraged – call ext. 2162 to make one. Writing Center Director Chuck Lewis and the trained student tutors are ready to leap to your aid. Literally.
The Writing Center’s friendly staff of trained student tutors can help you with everything from generating ideas for your next great paper, to finally understanding the nuances of citation formats, to helping you rework your drafts (only dead writers don’t revise!). How about help on how to conduct research and properly acknowledge your sources? Write a killer thesis statement? Clarify your objectives? Show semicolons who’s boss? Get your bearings even before you begin writing? Yep. The Writing Center can do all those things, too.
If you can’t wait another moment for the Writing Center’s wisdom, visit their website where you will find a wealth of links to handy guides including grammar checklists, The Elements of Style, Dr. Syntax, how to write in different academic divisions, tips on writing essay exams, and a whole lot more.
As Steve Martin (and the Writing Center’s t-shirts from a few years ago) said, “Some people have a way with words. Others not have way.” Go to the Writing Center. Have way.
