New Floor….New Writing Center (almost)

A few week ago the Writing Center at Bessey Hall was closed for two days as we had new flooring installed in our high traffic areas. While everything was moved around our faithful and multi-talented writing consultants cleaned and scrubbed. Then everything was moved back, but thoughtfully transformed. You can see the difference even as you come in to the center. The registration desk is moved for better access and flow. We want you to feel welcomed from the first moment you get here.

Coming In

Your first step is to stop at our front desk and let the receptionist know that you are here.

Past the receptionist desk, the center opens up into a space with the tables and pods where consulting takes place.

If you don’t have an appointment, we have a computer where you can log in to register your session.

Now you can relax for a few minutes until the consultant is ready to see you. We have coffee, tea and water available if you like. Consultants also do online appointments, projects, and other communications work…so even if they are sitting at their computer, they are working on something…so just be patient and use the time to review your questions or write a few last minute comments.

We’ve tried to better utilize our space. Even though things are quiet right now, soon we will be full of writers working together!

Resources

Not only do we have the resources of the people in the Writing Center, we have quite a library of references to help in the writing process.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
