New Writing Center Outpost in Loop Adult Student Center

New Outpost Location!

The UCWbL is pleased to announce that the Writing Center will have a new Outpost location in the Loop campus beginning Tuesday, March 2. Like our Lincoln Park Outpost in Richardson Library, the Loop Outpost will serve writers on a walk-in basis only. The new Outpost is located in the Adult Student Center, room 11017 of the DePaul Center. It is open to all students and will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m.

Nominate students to be Writing Center Tutors by 4/9

Please nominate your strong writers to be Writing Center tutors. To nominate students, please see

SNL student tutors are invaluable not only for their work with fellow SNL students, who are often more comfortable working with an adult tutor, but also for their ability to educate other tutors about SNL and adult students.

This is a particularly excellent opportunity for students interested in education or graduate work in English.

As part of their training, tutors take a tutor training course which has been pre-approved for the L6 and H2X competencies.

Nominations are due by noon on Friday, April 9, 2010.

"I love being a collaborative writing tutor at the DePaul Writing Centers. I am getting hands-on experience for a future career in teaching. It's educational and interesting to work with the students from cultures across the globe - truly, this is an experience in globalization on many levels. I am motivated to improve my writing skills in order to be a better tutor; and, the Writing Center is full of people who love nothing better than to chat about writing and tutoring - what better way to improve your own writing skills." --  SNL student and Writing Center Tutor
