What We Do
The Writing Center Supports Three Main Areas of Emphasis:
Tutoring services are available to any Troy University student. We coach students on global revision or on any specific area of mechanics or grammar that the student needs or requests.
We also offer focused reading instruction for students who experience difficulty comprehending their course texts as part of our Paragraph Program.
The Writing Center has a library of printed resources dealing with literature, rhetoric and composition, research writing, and interdisciplinary writing. TROY students, faculty, and staff are welcome to use any of these materials.
We also have workbooks and teacher guides for use in working with students for whom English is a second language (ESL).
In addition, we manage a robust Free Library. We have hundreds of books across interest areas, including many textbooks across the disciplines, available for free.
Workshops are offered periodically throughout the year, both for teachers and for students, in the Writing Center or in a classroom setting. We are always open to suggestions for workshops, so please tell us if you see a need for one. In addition, we gladly give tours of the Writing Center by appointment.
