Writing Center
Writing is very difficult, whether it be for students or people in general. Many people
cannot write without a grammar or spelling mistake especially for 3-4 pages. Also, nobody can
say that writing 3-4 pages without mistakes is easy except a person who has experience with
writing for many years. However, the Oakland University Writing Center has allowed students to
improve their writing in many ways. This convenient serve offers expert staff who can provide
specific assistance.
The Writing Center is located at 212 Kresge Library in the corner of the building. For
students new to campus, Kresge Library is located between the Science Engineering Building
and the Oakland center. It is also close to the clock tower. The Writing Center office is open
Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
and on Sundays from 3:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (“the writing center). Students who want to make an
appointment can make it in person during office hours or on-line at
http://wwwp.oakland.edu/ouwc. Also, students should register in the system before they make
appointments. Moreover, there are more than four tables in the Writing Center, but each one can
only seat two people. Therefore, the Writing Center does not take a big space in the Kresge
Library.

The Writing Center is a free service that benefits Oakland University students in many
ways. The staff in the Writing Center are professionals or have enough experience with writing
to fix other students writing. Thus, students can improve their writing appropriately. During an
interview with Adrian Schirr she said that approximately 22 tutors work for the Oakland
University Writing Center. Their majors range from writing and rhetoric and English to pre-law
and education. They receives training online. Each tutor must complete several hours on the
computer before observing and co-tutoring sessions alongside experienced consultants (schirr).
Before becoming a tutor the staff must fill out an application, submit a writing sample, and
interview in the center. They must demonstrate strong people skills and should be informed
writers with strong backgrounds in the field.
Before the Writing Center allows one to make an appointment, they determine your
weakness based on your writing to make it up. The Writing Center assists any kind of writing
courses except ESL writing. Some writing intensive courses that may come as a surprise are
Biology, Research Method, and Statistics. In fact, most of the Writing Center staff are students
and that is good for the students who need assistance. The majority of the tutors can understand
the situation of the student. Being students, the tutor can more clearly explain how to approach
writing assignments because they have gone through the same straggles.
But, how does the Writing Center actually work? As mentioned earlier, the students
should make appointments, whether on-line or in person during office hours. Then, students
should determine what kind of help they need. Also, they can make appointments with any
person they like. With each new appointment students make, they should seek specific
assistance. After that, tutors of the Writing Center will come to the students and help them with
their writing for 45 minutes. They may give the students more time about 10 more minutes. The
