Frequently Asked Questions
The Writing Center is a place where students can drop in to consult with tutors on writing for any class or project.
The Writing Center is located in Elizabeth Hall, Room 210.
The Writing Center is a service that is free to all WSU students--take advantage of it!
Any Weber State University student is welcome to use the Writing Center.
Students come to the Writing Center seeking consultation with grammar, organization, thesis statements, citations, and various other writing-related concerns. A Writing Center tutor will sit with you and address your concerns for any writing, from creative pieces to lab reports to graduate school essays.
The Writing Center tutors are students from our very own university. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds and majors, from technical writing to nursing.
Appointments & Sessions
No. Because our focus is to support students in improving their writing skills, our practice is to meet with students one-to-one, either face-to-face or online. The revising process is the best way to learn, and we encourage students to be fully engaged in it.
Appointment--We have our calendar set up for the semester's availablity so that students can plan ahead and make appointments in advance by coming to the Writing Center front desk or by calling us at 801-626-6463. Making appointments is especially recommended during certain times of the semester when more students will be seeking our services, such as during midterms and finals.
We will do everything we can to accommodate you, but please don't leave assignments for the last minute!
No worries. Your appointment spot will be given to a waiting student, and you can be next in the drop-in queue. You can also reset your appointment for another time. If you need to cancel, please call our center at 801-626-6463, or simply come in.
Each session is set for approximately 30 minutes. Depending on the availability of tutors and the number of students signed up for that day, sessions may go longer if needed. However, if you find that you need more time, we encourage you to return! Also, if you make an online appointment, you can elect to set your time for an hour if you prefer.
Please bring a printed copy of your writing, any materials or guidelines, and questions or concerns about your writing and/or the requirements.
In the Writing Center, you can use the dictionaries, grammar resources, MLA, APA, and Turabian formatting guides, and computers.
