The Writing Center provides free writing assistance to all Alfred University students, faculty, and staff. Our eight student tutors represent a range of disciplines, including English, communications, psychology, Spanish, chemistry, biology, and fine art. Tutors are trained to deal with all kinds of writing tasks. Whether you need help discovering ideas, organizing information, revising a final draft, or preparing technical documents, the Writing Center can help you improve your writing abilities and gain confidence as a writer. The Center is located upstairs in Herrick Library in the Center for Academic Success. We also have Sunday and evening hours on the first floor of Herrick. You can make an appointment at our website, my.alfred.edu/writing. Walk-ins are welcome, but priority is given to scheduled appointments.
