What is the Writing Center?
Every student can receive peer coaching and assistance with assignments in any course. In August, 2017, 23 students received training at Kennesaw State University using the Bedford Guide for Writing. In all, the Raider Writing Center has 24 trained tutors this year, 8 of whom are veterans and 16 in their first year.
Students should complete the Writing Center Student Request Form prior to visiting the Writing Center. Having the form completed in advance will ensure the most productive use of time during the help session.
Students will need to obtain a hall pass to visit the Writing Center.
