The Center for Writing & Academic Achievement

The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) provides welcoming, peer-based academic support in a comfortable and inclusive environment. Our services cover all academic disciplines and support students at various points in their academic careers. We believe in fostering confidence and a positive attitude in tutors and tutees alike, while encouraging a love of learning beyond the classroom. The CWAA is located in MacPhaidin Library, room 314.

The CWAA will be closed for Thanksgiving break starting at 2:00pm on Tuesday (11/22). There will be no Math Lab or Atrium tutoring on Tuesday night. The CWAA will reopen at 6:00pm on Sunday (11/27). Math Lab and Atrium tutoring will resume Sunday night as well. Happy Thanksgiving!
