History Writing Center


The History Writing Center is a discipline specific center that is open to all undergraduate students enrolled in History classes. We offer one–on-one assistance with all stages of the writing process.

Located in Bunche Hall 2165, we are open Monday from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday through Thursday from 10am to 6pm, and Friday from 9am to 3pm. The center will open its doors on the Monday of week two.

 

APPOINTMENTS

We strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment in advance, but we also have drop-in appointments. Appointments can be scheduled online. Please note that we do not look at take home exams, unless we have the instructor's specific consent.

We strongly recommend that you schedule an appointment in advance, but if we are full, you may try walking in to the History Writing Center on the half hour (e.g. 10:30, 12:30, 1:30, etc.). We cannot guarantee that a tutor will be available, but we will do our best to accommodate you.

Please note that you need to bring in a hard copy of your paper with you. We do not read papers online. You cannot print your papers at the History Writing center. Please make sure you print your papers before coming to your appointment.
