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.

Finals are coming! The CWAA is here to help with both writing  and content area support, so be sure to stop by.

Our current schedule will remain in effect through the last day of regular classes (5/4). We will also be open during finals. Check out our complete schedule through the end of the semester below.
