The Writing Center at CUA
Welcome! The Writing Center is open for business. We look forward to helping you with all your writing needs!
The CUA Writing Center is committed to helping students develop as writers. To this end, we offer one-on-one consultations with student writers of all levels, at all stages of the writing process. We work with students in collaborative consultations where dialogue, practice, and discovery are paramount. Attentive listening, critical reading, and purposeful writing characterize the hallmarks of our sessions.
Need help on Saturday and Sunday? Walk-in on the Weekend! We're open Saturdays, 11a-2p in the Main Lobby of Mullen Library and Sundays in Leahy Hall (room 100), 6-9pm. (Walk-in only).
