We're back today with more #reasonstovisitthewritingcenter! (Which, don't forget, opens on Tuesday, Sept. 7!)
Even though we're the *Writing* Center, we sometimes have fun with *math* too, and today we're all about the numbers, especially these ones: last year, 94% of students who visited the Writing Center more than once ended the academic year in good standing, with an average GPA of 3.2! We *definitely* like those numbers :)

The Writing Center opens for Fall semester on Tuesday, Sept. 7, in its beautiful new space in the Academic Commons, and we can't wait to see you all face to face (well, mask to mask!). Not comfortable meeting in person? We've got you--we're still offering synchronous online appointments. Use Bengal Success Portal to book your in person or online appointment.

Need more convincing that using the Writing Center is a great idea? We'll let Siti Khadijah, who graduated in May with a BA in International Relations, tell you why she used the Writing Center every semester during her time as a student at Buffalo State:

"I started at Buffalo State College in fall 2019 as a transfer and an ESL student. I was uncertain about my writing abilities...however I didn't give up...I continued going to the Buff State Writing Center for assistance throughout my undergraduate journey...they gave me one-on-one time to learn skills I needed to become better and make me feel more confident with the work I turned in. Moreover, the Writing Center tutors went above and beyond to guide me to fulfill my assignments’ requirements confidently."

We love helping students like Siti succeed and reach their goals! Check back in every day this week as we share more #reasonstovisittheWritingCenter !

Introduction to the Buffalo State College Writing Center Spring 2021

Fun fact: 92% of students who used the Writing Center during the fall were in good academic standing after the semester ended!

So, does this mean using the Writing Center guarantees you a good grade on your paper? Well…no! BUT, what it DOES mean is that using the Writing Center is a habit of a successful student. And students who use it regularly, throughout the semester, and work on revisions on their own, in between their visits, are even more successful!

The Writing Center opens for synchronous and asynchronous online tutoring bright and early on Monday, Feb. 8, but you can be proactive and book your appointment right now using Bengal Success Portal. Check out our video for more information and details about how online tutoring works.

Talk to you soon!

This brief overview introduces students to the Writing Center and discusses our online appointment options for Spring 2021.

We are super proud of our peer tutor Calogero Tiermini, who is featured today in the "Faces of Buffalo State" series! We especially love his advice to fellow students: "remember that you are not alone." We could not agree more!

Faces of Buffalo State: Calogero Tiermini, Social Studies Education Major, Class of 2022
💬
Hi, my name is Calogero Tiermini. I am part of the Class of 2022 and am a Social Studies Education, 7-12 major with a Political Science minor. I love music and movies, and some of my favorite memories on campus are having fun with friends at the Honors Student Banquet and Haunted Hall in North Wing!

From the moment I took my first tour, I knew I wanted to attend Buffalo State. Not only had I heard the college’s reputation as an amazing school for future teachers, but I felt an overwhelming sense of community and pride while just walking around the campus.

In my time at Buffalo State, I've been actively involved on campus. I am currently the President of the Muriel A. Howard Honors Program and I have been heavily involved with the Honors Program since freshman year. I have also been a Resident Assistant for the past three years.

Buffalo State has allowed me to grow as a professional and as a person.

🔸 From campus faculty and staff, I have learned to be organized, timely, and hard working.

🔸 From my peers, I have learned to be kind, to take time to have fun, and to be a strong shoulder for your fellow students.

🧡 For any other students who have been struggling with staying motivated and connected during COVID-19, just remember, that you are not alone. The wonderful Buffalo State community will always be there to lend a helping hand!
