The Writing Center extends its boundaries and consultants to two unique satellite locations across campus, to provide additional meeting options and welcome many writers.

First, the Writing Center holds evening hours as part of JCU’s Learning Commons, over in Grasselli Library.  We have two experienced consultants available on Wednesday and Sunday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Seminar A.  These hours work on a first-come, first-served basis–we do not take appointments.

Our second satellite location is reserved for students registered with the Services for Students with Disabilities OfficeSamantha Syracuse, a professional tutor, dedicates six hours per week to students who request additional assistance with writing assignments and may need some accommodations.  Each consultation will last between 45-60 minutes, and includes time for discussion and practical application. Samantha is a graduate of JCU’s Master of Arts in English program with a specialization in Composition and Rhetoric.  She brings many years of experience working with students with disabilities at both Ursuline College and JCU, and has formed strong working relationships with many students registered with the SSD Office at JCU.  Her hours for Fall Semester 2014 are as follows:
*Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. (O’Malley Center 215)
