Writing Center Opens Doors

The late Jim Clayton was not only an ACS trustee and former editor at the Washington Post. He was a renowned wordsmith and philanthropist, and his legacy lives on in our community: in the new Campus Center, adjacent to the Gipson Library, we dedicated a Jim Clayton Writing Center.

To the students, it promises: "We help you strengthen your writing and communication skills by providing resources, workshops, and one-on-one support for all kinds of assignments and projects that require writing, i.e. academic essays, presentations, personal statements, creative writing, and more."

Obviously, this goes way beyond texting, so sign us up. But just one question before you do, dear Writing Center: what level of English proficiency do I need to have in order to set foot in your door?

The Writing Center replies, "All students are welcome. Writers from all levels are welcome! Students can come for help at any point in the writing/creation process."

You had us at "All," Writing Center. We'll be there when the Jim Clayton Writing Center opens its doors on September 25!
