I strongly encourage 101 students to visit the Writing Center at least once this semester for help with writing assignments. The SIUC Writing Center is a wonderful, free resource available to all SIU students and staff. Tutors at the Writing Center are there to assist writers of all skill, level, and need from brainstorming for an essay topic to research, reading, drafting, and revising. The center has appointment times throughout the week, including weekend hours, that can be arranged via their website http://write.siu.edu/, or by phone at (618)453-1231.
Start off strong by knowing what resources are avaliable to you!
