S17 COURSES: LET US INTRODUCE YOUR STUDENTS TO THE EIU WRITING CENTER!
Do your students know they can visit the Writing Center (Coleman Hall 3110) to get help understanding a writing assignment and planning how to approach it?

We would love to send a Writing Center consultant to explain how they can use this free student support service at every stage of the writing process.

To request a 10- to 15-minute orientation for any or all of your classes, email Director Fern Kory. Include information about when and where your class meets, and what date/time would work best for you.
