For Your Syllabus

You may use the following paragraph in your syllabus:

The Writing Center, located on the upper level of the library (HL 213B), is a free resource for student writers. The center is staffed by undergraduate Writing Fellows who have been recommended by Carthage faculty and trained to work with other students on their writing. They can work with you at all stages of the writing process, including understanding the assignment, brainstorming ideas, drafting, revising, and proofreading. This semester they are offering live virtual and written feedback consultations.
