Coming Fall 2012: Writing Workshops
This Fall, the Learning Center presents the fourth part of our popular 30 Minute Workshop series. In Spring 2012, students learned grammar concepts such as constructing sentences and placing punctation. Now students can build on those concepts in order to improve their spelling, use of commas, and understanding quoting in academic papers. Such popular topics as transitions and thesis development will also be discussed. These workshops are perfect for students in any department, at any point in their college career. We hope to see you there!
Fall Writing Workshop Schedule
*All workshops take place Thursday evenings from 7-7:30pm in the Learning Center*
