Graduate Resources

The Writing Center’s goal is to support the entire Mines community, from students to faculty to alumni. As a resource for graduate students, we work with thesis writing, journal articles, and we work with GSG to provide thesis formatting reviews. We also hold graduate writing hours separate from our standard hours to cater to graduate student needs.

The Writing Center hosts a signature event each year known as the Thesis Writers Retreat. Exclusive to graduate students, this retreat is a chance to write with your peers, learn from breakout sessions on a variety of topics, and work with professional writing consultants to best portray your research.

All formatting sessions will take place with the consultant titled “thesis formatting.” Appointments are available on the following days:​
