Writing Center

What is the Writing Center?

  • The Writing Center collaborates with both students IN 3XXX-LEVEL CLASSES and their instructors to help Spanish students produce their best writing. Its objective is to empower students with strategies for writing in Spanish through a process of organizing, drafting, and revising their analytical ideas.
  • The Writing Center is dedicated to helping Spanish students become better communicators by engaging students in the process of crafting a written essay.
  • We serve the analytical and critical needs of students in upper-division (3xxx-level) composition, literature, culture, and linguistic classes helping them to overcome some of the difficulties of writing in a second language.
  • We aspire to unite students who desire to be proficient and creative writers in a community with instructors and faculty.
