How the Campus Writing Center Can Help You Ace Your Class Essay

By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

No matter how talented you are at writing, there is no one who can write the perfect draft. Now that we have that out of the way, I wanted to let you know how to move one step closer to transforming your rough draft into a polished A+ essay by using a completely free campus service: The UNCW campus writing center located in DePaolo Hall. Students can schedule one-one-one appointments with a writing tutor or drop in the writing lab to get help with formatting issues or revision. As a writing tutor myself, I’ve literally seen it all come through the door from misplaced modifiers, run-on sentences, disorganization, passive voice, and everything else under the sun. Students often make the same three to four mistakes over and over which cause them to remain stagnant in their writing. Here are some ways the writing center can help you improve your essay writing.

Project managers have to be planners, initiators and excellent communicators.
