DSU Writing Center & Writing Center Online

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

How do I schedule an appointment?

For instructions on scheduling an appointment in Starfish (both on campus and online), visit the "How-To" guide for on-campus and online appointments. Campus students are encouraged to schedule an appointment at our Beadle Hall location.  

Options for distance students

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).

Spring 2018 Schedule

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 kacie.fodness@dsu.edu for academic assistance.
