Our consultants can offer individualized assistance through one-on-one sessions that last 45 minutes, and which start at the top of each hour (ex. 1 p.m.). These sessions can be in person or online and can focus on any stage of the process, from brainstorming and developing ideas to editing final products.
Specifically, consultants will discuss your assignments, listen to your ideas, ask you questions, talk about writing strategies, offer constructive feedback, and strengthen your writing and communication habits. In addition, they can assist with small group assignments so long as all members of the group are present.
The WCC is a dynamic ever-evolving space, with mobile seating and whiteboards, so students are encouraged to bring their own laptops and tablets to work in the WCC. (If students do not have their own device, a limited number of laptops are available for consultants to provide during sessions.)

Students are encouraged to bring their own laptops and tablets to work in the WCC. The WCC is a dynamic ever-evolving space, with mobile seating and whiteboards that promote constant creativity. To maintain this atmosphere, desktop computers are not installed in the WCC. If students do not have their own device, a limited number of laptops are available for consultants to provide during sessions, though we cannot guarantee their availability. Students may also bring a hard copy of their assignment in place of a device.
