Well, friends, it’s that time of year again: the start of another new semester. Whether you’re a freshman who has finally gotten a handle on this whole “college thing,” or a senior standing on graduation’s threshold (as I am), each new semester introduces a host of emotions. And, let’s be honest, a fair amount of stress, as well.
Fortunately, the WKU Writing Center is here to help.
As of this week, we’re officially open for business! If you’ve never visited the WKU Writing Center before, our main location is in Cherry Hall 123. Simply head towards the building’s computer lab and take a right just before you get there. We’re the first room (not the bathroom) on the right. All you need for an appointment is your paper, a pencil, and a smile. Knowing your 800 number helps, too.
If you can’t make it to our Cherry Hall location during the day, though, we’re happy to say that we’re open in Cravens Library from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Our station is at the Reference Desk in the Commons at Cravens. If you’ve never been there before, simply go to the fourth floor of the taller of the two buildings and find the area with several computers. We’ll be there!
Our hours for both locations this semester are as follows:
You can schedule an appointment with us by calling (270) 745-5719 during our operating hours. Or you can drop in when you’re nearby and schedule an appointment in person. We’re also available for drop-in appointments, though spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Be sure to stay up to date on Writing Center happenings by following us on Facebook and checking out this blog every now and then. We typically post once a week, so keep an eye out for more content heading your way!
The WKU Department of English also has a newly updated blog: First Floor Cherry. Check it out to have a great sense of what’s happening in the overall department and to read some great content.
