Transylvania's Writing Center is a comfortable and inviting workspace where students, faculty, and staff come together to talk about writing.
Our tutors are trained to help writers identify and tackle their own writing challenges. They provide suggestions, offer pertinent examples, and put together supplemental exercises suited to each writer's individual needs. They work hard to be respectful readers and listeners who help students direct and motivate themselves, set product goals, and develop good writing habits.
The Center is staffed by writers who are willing to give time and attention to other writers—whether it be to ease fears in the planning phase of the writing, to locate information to support a thesis, or to work through the nuts and bolts of citing secondary sources in a term paper.

Our goal in working with writers is to improve their confidence. To accomplish this, we follow students through all stages of the process of writing a paper—from selecting a workable topic to polishing the final draft.

Transylvania University admits students regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other classification protected by federal or state law or local ordinance.
