What can we help with?
The DSU Writing Center & Writing Center Online provide reading and writing support to students across a variety of disciplines. From interpreting a course text to finalizing near-complete essays, our Learning Assistants can assist you at any stage of the process. In addition to one-on-one consultations, the Writing Center offers individualized assistance as well as group workshops in reading, study skills, scholarly formatting, research, and a variety of other topics.
Our Learning Assistants are available to meet in person, via Skype, or provide asynchronous feedback on a piece of writing through a D2L dropbox folder.
Location: Beadle Hall 112
Distance students may access these resources through the Writing Center D2L site. Options for distance students include a Skype/Collaborate appointment or asynchronous feedback on a dropbox submission. Note: Scheduling an appointment through Starfish is required for submissions to the Writing Center Online dropbox.
Remember all dropbox submissions should be uploaded prior to the scheduled appointment and must include a copy of the writing assignment and an Online Response Form (see Document Library below or visit the Writing Center D2L page).
Schedules are developed based on a survey of student availability in the first week of classes. More information will be posted in early January. Until then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for academic assistance.
