About The Writing Room

The Writing Room, located in Room 14 of the Academic Building, serves as the computer lab for 0321developmental writing students. These students are required to put in two hours of lab time per week, and The Writing Room provides them a place to do so in a quiet atmosphere that offers computers, software, and resources specifically designed for their needs. It also tracks students' time by logging them in and out so that instructors can measure time spent in the lab. The Writing Room offers extended open hours so that lab hours can be readily adapted to each student's schedule, no matter his or her time concerns. The Writing Room also serves as an open computer lab where all students can come to work on writing assignments and receive additional instruction or clarification when needed. The Writing Room is available for reservation by instructors when they may need to demonstrate a technique for their students or work through computer-based exercises. Last, one-on-one tutoring is currently offered in The Writing Room during certain hours. Students seeking tutoring assistance should check out our tutoring hours by clicking on the "Hours" link on the left-hand side of this page. This semester, we will also be offering tutoring on Sundays. By providing friendly, student-centered, one-on-one access to help, The Writing Room seeks to improve students’ knowledge and command of the writing process.
