Writing Center opens Woodruff Library location for end-of-semester walk-in help

Students needing help with writing assignments during the end-of-semester crunch time can find it at the satellite location of the Emory Writing Center in the Robert W. Woodruff Library. The main location is in Callaway N212.  

This second location, behind the Service Desk on Level 2 of the library, will operate Monday through Thursday, Dec. 3-13, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is open to all students from Emory College and Laney Graduate School.  

Graduate fellows and peer tutors from the Emory Writing Center will be available to assist students with their assignments on a first-come, first-served basis. These appointments will last for a maximum of 30 minutes, although students who need more time can schedule hour-long appointments at the Emory Writing Center's main location. 

"We hope that opening this second location will better serve student needs during the stressful exam period and further extend the Emory Writing Center services at a time when demand is increased," says Maureen Terese McCarthy, a graduate fellow in the Emory Writing Center.  

All students must bring a printout of any work they would like a tutor to review. Students will be allowed to use this extended service only once a day to ensure that the Writing Center is able to assist as many students as possible with their assignments.
