Graduate Writing Group
Graduate writing groups will meet in person at the Writing Center every other Thursday, 9AM-12PM. Work on writing your thesis, conference paper, or any other type of project. These sessions are casual and meant to give you a set time to work on your writing. You can attend for all or only part of the designated time. A professional writing consultant will be available for feedback and support should you need it at any point during the session. Coffee is provided to keep you fueled and focused as you write!
Registration for each group will be available two weeks before the designated date.
Thesis Formatting Reviews
Graduate Student Government and the Office of Graduate Studies provides thesis formatting support via the Writing Center 2-3 weeks before upload deadlines. Students should prepare an electronic copy of their thesis for a preliminary format review. Students can receive help with issues such as margins, visual aids, page numbers, white space, and front matter. All formatting sessions will take place with the consultant titled “thesis formatting.” Appointments are available on the following days:
