The College Writing Center

Open throughout Finals Week and Summer Session.

College Writing Center services are ALWAYS COMPLETELY FREE FOR POTSDAM STUDENTS.
No Fee.  Ever.

Free personal assistance on writing at any point in your writing process on an assignment, scholarship application, etc.

No one writes perfectly on the first try! But you're in luck: we can help you figure it out.

  • Talk with a tutor and see your writing in a new light, even if you're just getting started.
  • Bring in your assignment, your draft, your concerns -- whatever you've got. Working with a tutor will help you build on what you've got and produce a strong result.
  • We won't tell you how to write your paper, and we won't edit your paper for you.
  • CWC tutors will help you write your paper how you want to.

Book your appointment in advance by stopping by, emailing, or calling (during open hours, please). A few days should be enough to get the time slot you prefer. Occasionally, we can accommodate walk-ins, but we can't guarantee that.

During Summer Session I, the CWC is open Mon., Wed., and Fri. from Noon to 2 p.m. We also offer email feedback and some additional hours on request.

During Summer Session II, the CWC will offer email feedback and some hours on request.

CWC for EOP Students: Monday through Thursday 3 - 6 p.m. See Bethany or an EOP counselor.

Email feedback: See guidelines on the left of this page and email cwcfeedback@potsdam.edu.
