New walk-in hours for writing center

The LLCC Writing Center is excited to announce new, formalized walk-in hours Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the fall semester. Walk-in service will be located in the Writing Center behind the staircase, just opposite the Math Center. Students should sign-in for walk-in hours at the Writing Center’s front desk.

Of course, students can still make formal appointments with a faculty tutor, especially if they want to discuss a full draft of a writing assignment, and they may also come to the center during any of the center’s open hours to get help if a tutor or specialist is available, but these designated walk-in hours will allow students to receive more focused tutoring on smaller writing issues during our high-traffic hours.

The attached flyer contains more detailed information. Feel free to share this flyer with your students. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Writing Center at 786-2341 or writing.center@llcc.edu.
