The Rose State Writing Center provides one-on-one help with any Rose State writing project at no charge. The Center is open to all students. No referral required. HU 104 is a quiet, comfortable place for writers to work. The Writing Center on campus and ONLINE is staffed with qualified Lab Instructors, Adjunct Professors, and Faculty. On campus and online, qualified lab instructors, adjunct professors and faculty are prepared to help with any Rose State writing project. We provide computer tutorials which help students evaluate and correct common punctuation, grammar, and writing problems. We want to help you succeed.
We have assembled resource links that may help with some of your questions, but if further assistance is needed, submit an essay and complete the Ask an Instructor and attach an essay and tell us your concern about the assignment. We want to help! If you wish to ask a question and attach a file so that you might receive feedback on your document, please use the Ask an Instructor Attachment Guidelines to submit your question and your file. You may also visit the Writing Center on campus. Students using the Online Writing Lab can expect to receive a response via E-mail within two college business days. The Writing Center Lab Instructors are not responsible for class deadlines or due dates. Contact the writing lab at 733-6216 or Sandra Keneda, Humanities 108, 733-7384 for more information.
Lab instructors are pleased to assist students with assignments by helping them brainstorm, outline, draft, edit, and proofread; however, we cannot correct an entire essay for the students. We will provide examples and assist as the student makes appropriate improvements.
The Writing Center provides a number of very good software tutorials (including ESL software) to guide students through basic grammar and punctuation review as well as all levels of the writing process. The software is available in the Writing Center on campus and the Learning Resources Center. Students who need weekly tutoring sessions will be referred to Tutoring Services.
