Welcome to the Writing Center!
Cal State Fullerton's Writing Center stands firm in one belief: writers are made, not born. At the Writing Center, we promote a nurturing environment that cultivates the growth and creativity of all students, providing them with a place in which they can develop their skills as better writers and critical thinkers. We recognize that each student is an individual, so we tailor our strategies to respond to his or her specific needs. Our methods emphasize collaboration as a means of enhancing each student's unique voice. We also believe in the value of writers helping writers. In fact, the Writing Center staff consists of graduate and undergraduate students thoroughly trained in writing and collaborative tutoring. Finally, we strive to empower students from all academic levels and disciplines, and we are committed to facilitating students' development as successful writers throughout their university experience.
Overall, we think we offer the campus community a valuable resource, but don't take our word for it. Here is what students have to say about their experiences at the Writing Center:
"I feel welcomed every time I go to the Writing Center. I honestly love the comfortable atmosphere they have created. They have helped me develop my thoughts and brought confidence to my writing."
—Denise Sevilla, Psychology Major
"The one-on-one tutoring with English gives you more help than just talking to the teacher in a larger class"
—Ilyse Woolf, Art Major
"Tutors taught me about free-writing which I now use in many classes. It helps me see my ideas clearly"
—Melanie Gonzalez, Criminal Justice Major
"The thing I like best about the writing center is the camaraderie between people who really want to make a positive difference."
—Garrett Ehring, English Graduate Student
