The Writing Center offers one-on-one writing help for students, faculty, and staff for any writing project, whether or not it is for a class. We can help you get started; or get “unstuck” in the middle of a project; or go over your final draft with you before you submit it.

ESL Services are available for international students (or any non-native English speakers) to come in for help learning and improving their English (including writing, speaking, listening, and reading) as well as dealing with any culture shock they are encountering as they adjust to life in the US, in North Carolina, and/or here on campus. There are currently no ESL courses available.

Please check our LibGuide for writing and ESL resources, current Writing Center hours, or instructions for making appointments.
