I think the Writing Center is an invaluable tool for Marywood students; please don't be afraid to use it! We are here to help you at any point in the writing process; no task is too small. Most importantly, you don't have to be an English major to write a great paper.

Major: English

Minor: Public Relations

I enjoy making music, reading, collecting tea cups, and writing. I like working at the Writing Center because I find it rewarding to help other people improve their writing. In turn, it improves my writing. The more you communicate with peers about their writing, the wider your eyes open for your own.
