Writing Center

General Information

History of Shawnee State University's Writing Center

The Reading and Writing Center was established in 2003 with funds from Shawnee's Title III grant. Grant money was used to renovate ADM 031, dividing it into two rooms: an outer room (the tutoring area) and a computer-assisted classroom. Initially, the Center was only open to at-risk students enrolled in Developmental English classes, many of which met in ADM 031. In September of 2005, the Reading and Writing Center opened its doors to all Shawnee students interested in getting help with their reading or writing. The name was changed to the Writing Center in 2011.


The Center can be accessed by entering the southeast side of the Administration Building, off the parking lot. After entering the building, it will be the first door on the left (ADM 031).

The Center can also be accessed from Massie Hall. Take the elevator to the ground floor/basement. Take a right and follow the hallway as it winds around to the snack area across from University Information Systems. Make a left turn and proceed to the end of the hall. The Center will be the last door on your right.
