Text Snippets about Academic Support Centers
Sample #1: The HMC Writing Center provides a welcoming space for writers to get feedback on their composition projects, whether written, spoken or visual pieces. Writing Center Consultants are prepared to assist students in any discipline at any stage of the writing process, from developing an idea to polishing a final draft. Even the most accomplished writers benefit from seeking feedback at the writing center. The center is open Sunday through Thursday evenings from 7‐11 and Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 3‐5. It is located in Shanahan 1470, just up the walkway from the cafe. You may schedule an appointment through their website, http://www.hmc.edu/writingcenter, or you may simply drop in during normal hours. You will likely find your writing center visit more valuable if you go earlier than the night before your final draft is due.
Sample #2: The Writing Center provides Pomona students and 5C students in Pomona courses a community of experienced readers and writers, offering free, one-on-one consultations at any stage of the writing process ‐ from brainstorming ideas to fine‐tuning a draft. We work with students on a broad range of writing, including written and oral academic assignments in any discipline, in addition to creative writing, personal statements, resumes, and cover letters. The Writing Partners are Pomona students—sophomores, juniors, and seniors—majoring in disciplines as varied as Biology, Spanish, and Politics. They are trained to work with writers at all levels, and on work in any area. Consultations are available by appointment, which students can make online at writing.pomona.edu The Writing Center also offers drop‐in hours Sundays through Thursdays from 8‐10pm.
Sample #3 (Pomona faculty only): The Quantitative Skills Center offers individual peer‐led tutoring (by appointment), and drop in (no appointment required) study sessions in courses that include a quantitative component including (but not limited to) biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, and physics through our QSC Partners Program. You can also visit our page at pomona.edu/qsc, or on Facebook. We are located in the Smith Campus Center room 228. For any questions regarding the QSC, or for help finding a QSC partner for you, please contact Dylan Worcester, Assistant Director of the Quantitative Skills Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sample #4: Located in 131 Mead Hall, just across from the fountain, the Pitzer Writing Center offers free individual sessions with peer Fellows trained to consult on assignments in all disciplines at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming ideas to polishing a final draft. The Writing Center is one of Pitzer’s most popular academic resources, holding over 1,500 50‐minute appointments each year. I strongly urge you to make use of the center early and often during the writing process. To book a session or learn more about Writing Workshops, please visit https://www.pitzer.edu/writing‐center/. Specialized appointments are also available for international students, fellowship applicants, and senior thesis writers. Any student enrolled in a Pitzer course may use the Pitzer Writing Center for that course.
