The Writing Center at Albertus Magnus College provides ongoing assistance throughout the writing process, helping students develop and improve as mature writers and encouraging them to view writing as a means of learning and discovering. Integral to the comprehensive writing program at the College, the Writing Center offers an abundance of reference materials, print, and online resources, as well as the aid of WAs, who provide peer consultations on writing and research for student writers across all disciplines.
