Vassar College Writing Center

Thompson Library
Thompson Memorial Library, room 122

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 any writing project to the Center, including academic essays from any disciplines, lab reports, creative writing, senior theses, fellowship statements, as well as resumes, cover letters, and C.V.s. Students can also bring speaking assignments, including oral and multimedia presentations, poster talks, and teaching plans for leading class discussion.

Last year, in over 1,700 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 at

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