Writing Resource Center

Workshops

During the semester, the Writing Resource Center offers several workshops covering various writing and grammar related topics. 

Grammar is a massive component of writing; many workshop topics review particular areas. 

Learning how to properly research projects and essays is important. Workshops provide students with strategies they can use to smoothly integrate and explain the significance of quotations and paraphrases into their writing assignments.  Workshops also inform students of research resources. Workshops on specific citation styles (MLA and APA) are offered for students to learn the basics and to avoid plagiarism. 

The Writing Resource Center also offers workshops on writing personal statements for students pursuing professional opportunities and graduate programs.  All workshops this semester will be held on Tuesdays at noon unless otherwise noted.
