Loyal readers, who are no doubt staggering in number: you may have noticed something! We’re no longer the Whitman College Writing Center! We’re now the Center fOr Writing and Speaking (COWS) at Whitman! Even more exciting than our name change: we’ve MOOved! Our beautiful, festive new location is in Olin East, room E132. Stop by and check it out! Friday September 12th from 3-5 is our Grand Opening party, and you won’t want to miss it.
What else? Our tutors are better trained than ever before. Many of them took the first iteration of Professor McDermott’s GenS 310, “The Theory and Practice of Tutoring Writing,” last spring. Our tutors are well versed in myriad methods and techniques for peer-tutoring. Oh, and you may be wondering about the “Speaking” part. Well, starting in fall 2015, we will offer help with speaking (think presentations, oral exams, etc.) as well as writing!
Clearly, there is a lot to be excited about when it comes to writing at Whitman! Stop by the COWS, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, to find out more!
