Writing Center Workshops & Events


 

 

The Writing Center will help you review those important student success skills so you can stick to that  saddle when the riding gets rough, such as time management and reading strategies, as well as punctuation and sentence structure. Some students are getting ready to ride out on the range, so they might want guidance in their personal statements for transfer applications. 

 

Students are also welcome to make an appointment with a tutor to develop and revise a personal statement or the UC personal insight questions.
