Standing Appointments

Fill out our self-assessment form to request a standing appointment. We are excited to help you invest in your writing! Please commit to attending your standing every week—not only will consistent attendance give you true results, but it will also prevent your weekly appointment from being canceled. Our policy is to cancel a standing after two absences. The only excused absences are college-approved events like Student Symposium Day or a class field trip; illnesses, study groups, or meetings with professors or coaches are not excused. Please notify us of absences in advance.

Come and write with us from 5:00-6:30pm on Sunday, December 9 at the last Write Right Now (WRN) of the semester. WRN is like a “writing study hall” for any current student who wants to start—and finish—an academic writing assignment.  

***Wednesday, December 12 is our last day; all tutoring between 4-9pm will be held in Hotchkiss 101 on this day. We are closed on reading and exam days.***
