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 https://www.concordiacollege.edu/directories/offices-services/academic-enhancement-center/writing-center/ 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! 🙂
