Book Early!We're experiencing a high demand for our appointments this quarter. Most weeks, we are booked about one week out. We encourage writers to book in advance using our sign-up page. We also offer a limited number of drop-in appointments during our regular hours. Finally, keep checking our website, as sometimes appointments open up throughout the day. Thanks for your patience during a very busy time of the quarter!
2019 Writer Satisfaction Survey - Extended to 2/20The OWRC will survey writers for feedback regarding their tutoring sessions. Surveys will be distributed at the end of each tutoring session, and take 5 minutes to complete. During this time, all writing tutoring sessions will end 5 minutes early to allow writers time to complete the survey. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
