The Writing Center

The Writing Center provides support for ONU writers at every stage of the writing process. Whether you are looking for another eye to read over your already polished work or struggling to get started on a writing assignment, our trained peer tutors can help you reach the goals that you set for your writing. We serve students in all majors and subject areas, so if you have a writing-related question, schedule a one-on-one tutoring session, send us an email, or stop by our Virtual Writing Room.
