Writing Center

Student and Tutor

The SSU Writing Center

Shawnee State University Writing Center tutors help students in all majors improve their ability to write. We provide feedback on any kind of assignment at all phases of the writing process. We prioritize helping students learn how to tackle “bigger” concerns such as revising, brainstorming, organizing, and understanding an assignment although we do address punctuation, grammar, format and other “smaller” issues. We help students not only produce better writing, but also become better writers.

Faculty members can request to visit the Writing Center with their class or have a representative from the Writing Center visit their class for a brief orientation. To arrange a visit, to recommend a student as a tutor, or to ask a question about the Writing Center, contact the Interim Director of the Writing Center, Dr. Laura Hakala at lhakala@shawnee.edu or at 351-3022.
