Learning Assistance / DSU Writing Center

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 and online
