You are welcome here!
The writing center offers one-to-one tutoring to all Marquette students, staff, and faculty on all kinds of writing projects, from first year English papers to graduate theses, from history papers to personal statements for law school.
- 9 to 5 during fall and spring semesters, with some evening and weekend hours, subject to tutor availability.
- Summer hours, subject to tutor availability.
The writing center started in the mid-seventies with a CETA Grant and operated in Coughlin Hall, in the English Department. Still housed in the English Department, we moved first to Monitor Hall. In 2003 we moved to the Raynor Library.
In 1987, the family of Norman H. Ott endowed the writing center, in memory of Norman's great love of poetry. They hoped to foster writing of all kinds at Marquette.
Thanks to the endowment, the writing center sponsor writing events each year, from local poetry readings to visiting lecturers and writing conferences.
Thanks to the endowment, the writing center keeps its computer equipment and furnishings up to date so that students can come in and print or conference at the computers. Writers also use the computers to find research sources at the library or on the internet.
