The Writing Center!

Posted on Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 by Katie Beedy

Papers are an unavoidable part of the college experience, especially at a liberal arts school like Concordia. Some will be three pages, some will be twelve. Some will be creative, some will be research-based. Some people  enjoy writing them, some hate it more than they hate making the trek from Offutt to Knutson on -10 degree days. I happen to be one of those weird people who LOVES to write academic papers. I get a kick out of compiling research and taking notes and creating thesis statements and organizing my word vomit into cohesive thoughts. That is why I chose to work as a tutor in the Writing Center here at Concordia.

The Writing Center, located on the mezzanine floor of the Carl B. Ylvisaker Library, is an incredibly useful resource and I encourage all Cobbers to take advantage of it. We can help you with every step of the writing process, from brainstorming research topics to making final grammatical edits the day before your paper is due. All you need to do is set up an appointment! To do so, visit and click on the “Make an Appointment” link. From there, select either the 30 minute option (reserved for papers under six pages) or the 60 minute option. Select a date and time and you’re all set! We also offer walk-in services if you have any quick questions, such as how to create an APA in-text citation or whether you should be using a comma or semicolon.

The Writing Center is a very laid-back environment, but I promise that the assistance you receive there will  be incredibly beneficial. Come visit us! 🙂

Hi there! My name is Katie Beedy and I am a communication studies and multimedia journalism double major, class of 2018. I am also considering a minor in women’s and gender studies. I have lived here in lovely Moorhead, Minnesota for my entire life. After years of telling myself that I needed to break free and go to school far away, I finally gave in to the voice in my head telling me that Concordia was where I needed to be (and my goodness, am I glad I did). I don’t think any other school could better suit my combined passions for music, theatre, people, literature, food, social justice, adventures, and corn-related puns.

I love words and I love Concordia. I hope to use these loves to share my Cobber experience with you all.
