The Writing Center

Thompson Memorial Library (Main Library)

Hours: Sundays - Thursdays: 3:00-11:00pm

The Writing Center provides all Vassar students with a community of experienced peer-readers and writers by offering free, one-to-one consultations at any stage of the writing process—from generating a thesis and structuring an argument to fine-tuning a draft. All students are invited to bring writing projects to the Center, including academic essays from any disciplines, lab reports, creative writing, senior theses, and fellowship statements, as well as resumes, cover letters, and CVs. Students can also bring speaking assignments, including oral and multimedia presentations, poster talks, and teaching plans for leading class discussion.

Last year, in over 1,800 one-to-one meetings, our peer-consultants helped to promote the ongoing discovery and creation of knowledge across the curriculum and facilitated the articulate and appropriate expression of ideas in written student work. If you’d like to share your writing with us, please make an appointment online by logging into WCOnline.

The Writing Center is centrally located on the first floor of the Thompson Memorial Library (Main Library) in Room 122, just left of the Cornaro Window.
