Writing Center

The LaGrange College Writing Center is located on the lowest floor of Lewis Library. Staffed by trained undergraduate peer consultants, its hours are Monday-Thursday, 6-9 p.m. (as well as some posted additional times throughout the week) and by appointment. The Writing Center's peer consultants pride themselves on being informed readers and responders to writing from all disciplines and writers of all levels at any stage of the writing process. Consultations average 30 minutes and are focused on helping writers clarify their purposes, organize their evidence, and achieve their writing and research goals. The Writing Center also hosts workshops and group conferences to help students edit and proofread their own papers, conduct research, and share their ideas with real audiences.
