The Writing Center, located in 242 Bancroft Hall, provides a free writing consultation service to all members of the University community: students, staff, administrators, and faculty. The Writing Center's purpose is to help writers at all levels learn more about their writing through tutoring sessions.
Tutors help writers analyze assignments, address audiences appropriately, improve their composing processes, strengthen the focus and organization of their writing, and improve their control of the language. The Writing Center cannot provide a proofreading/editing service or guarantee better grades; its primary purpose is to improve writing in the long term.
Although operating hours may vary from semester to semester, the Writing Center is open at least five days a week. Scheduling an appointment ensures that a tutor will be available. To make an appointment, telephone 803-323-2138 or drop by the Center and speak with the receptionist. (We are not able to return calls to cell phones with area codes outside the Rock Hill area, and we cannot make appointments through e-mail.)
