General Questions

If you have questions about the Writing Center, please email us.



The Writing Center is staffed by undergraduate peer tutors who help students in all concentrations with course writing assignments and fellowship/grant/graduate school applications. Tutors are selected based on a demonstrated record of academic excellence across multiple fields, a writing sample, a letter of interest, and a rigorous interview.
