Whether you are struggling to put pen to paper or simply want a second pair of eyes to look over your draft, the Writing Center offers a free, informal opportunity to improve your writing skills. If you are a confident writer looking to develop your ideas further, a beginning writer needing extra help and encouragement, or anything in between, come in and work with one of our trained tutors. Each session, or rather each conversation, lasts about forty-five minutes to an hour, and you and your peer tutor will not only address immediate concerns but also work on developing skills that you can bring to future writing projects. Any writer, any type of assignment for any class, at any point in the writing process - stop by and let's talk!
The mission of Writing Across the Curriculum is to foster consensus that writing is integral to a liberal arts education at Loyola and to support the use of writing as a learning tool in all disciplines. WAC has articulated several ongoing goals by which to fulfill this mission:
Goal 1: To promote the use of writing in all classes through interdisciplinary faculty forums, class lectures, and consultation on writing in the disciplines.
Goal 2: To offer easily accessible peer tutoring that helps Loyola students improve the quality of their writing.
Goal 3: To maintain and operate computer centers and classrooms consistent with up-to-date writing and research technologies.
Goal 4: To publicize effectively the services we offer to on- and off-campus students.
Goal 5: To reward and nurture outstanding writing as an essential feature of educational excellence at Loyola.
