The Writing Center is officially open for business, and we already have a full house this afternoon. Make your appointment in Bengal Success Portal, or just drop by. Our data from last year shows that students who visited the writing center had higher GPAs and course grades at the end of the year than those who did not, SO….what are you waiting for??!

Interested in becoming a peer tutor at the Writing Center? We have just a few seats left in ENG 307W, our tutor training course! The course is also a great elective for students interested in sharpening their writing, teaching, and communication skills. Click below to see what past students had to say about the course!

As the semester ends, we want to congratulate our graduating Writing Center staff! Madison (BA, International Relations) has been a peer tutor at the center since 2019, and John (MA, English) started as a peer tutor in 2017 and most recently served as the center's Graduate Assistant for the last two years. Many thanks to Madison and John, who, combined, have helped more than 1,000 students with their writing during their time working at the center, an experience that they both value. Working at the Writing Center, John says, allowed him "to work around [his] school schedule while also practicing skills that will be essential in [his] career as a teacher. Working with students was also an awesome and rewarding experience!" Madison agrees, saying, "I loved working at the Writing Center because I enjoyed showing students new tricks to help them plan for tackling their assignments to make their writing easier, and I loved to watch students grow into stronger writers and see their confidence boost before my eyes." Be sure to congratulate Madison and John if you see them around next week!

Interested in becoming a peer tutor at the Writing Center yourself? There are still a few seats available in ENG 307W, the training class for peer tutors, that is being offered in the Spring! Email Dr. Herb with any questions: [email protected]

Students often ask us if we take walk-ins (forgive the silly visual pun!), and our answer is this: if we can! BUT, as the semester gets busier and midterm papers are due, we often can't accommodate walk-ins (like tonight when our schedule is already completely full!). Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use our appointment system, which is the only way to guarantee you'll be able to work with a tutor on a particular day or at a particular time. Head over to Bengal Success Portal to make your appointment now: https://academicsuccess.buffalostate.edu/bengal-success-portal

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 !
