In-Person Help at the Writing Lab

For in-person help with academic writing and assignments, visit the Cairn Writing Lab, located in the Academic Resource Center, across the hall from the Office of Student Life.
The Writing Lab is a tutoring  service open to all Cairn undergraduate and graduate students. Services are free of charge, and students can drop-in anytime during Writing Lab hours. Students at all levels of writing ability can utilize the Lab as a resource for honing organizational, grammar, and formatting skills, as well as for assistance in communicating one's own original ideas and writing style. We work with writers at any stage of the writing process, from pre-writing to editing at the sentence level.
