University Writing Center

Visit Us

Visit us in BH 114 when you need help with your writing.  Drop-ins are welcome, but you are encouraged to make an appointment.  Operating hours vary each semester, so check with the UWC at (318) 797-5184 for specific information.

You can greatly enhance your visit by following our "top 10" list of suggestions:

  1. Know your assignment, course, and instructor's name.
  2. Visit the UWC early in the writing process.
  3. Bring your textbook, assignment sheets, and drafts.
  4. Have specific questions about your writing.
  5. Be aware that handwritten drafts elicit fewer helpful responses than typed drafts.
  6. Be aware that peer counselors will limit your time to 30 minutes if other students are waiting.
  7. Don't expect peer counselors to correct/edit your paper or to proofread it; instead, they will show you how to identify your errors and correct them.
  8. Don't expect peer counselors to estimate the grade your paper will receive. Only your instructor can judge the quality of your work for a grade.
  9. Be open to the suggestions the peer counselors will make; ultimately, however, the final decision about changes/additions to your work is always yours. YOU are in charge of your work.
  10. Talk to the Director of the UWC if you have a problem with the advice a peer counselor gives you:
