All new Stonehill students must complete the College Writing Preparedness Survey. This survey helps us to identify whether you are interested in or would benefit from additional writing instruction and support in your first semester. In this survey, you will provide information about your writing and reading habits and write a short reflective paragraph on your history as a writer and reader. You will also have an opportunity to indicate your interest in our WRI 141, Introduction to College Writing course.

The WRI 141 is a workshop-based course designed for students who wish to practice and develop the essential skills of writing, critical reading and textual analysis at the college level. Instructors provide extensive feedback on assignments, helping students to gain more confidence with grammar, sentence structure and the writing process as a whole.

How to Complete the College Writing Preparedness Survey
