Student Writing LabThe ASC Writing Lab is dedicated to providing advice and resources to assist students in the writing process. We strive to help the writer develop the confidence to make effective writing choices, regardless of the discipline. We aspire to help create better writers for the 21st Century.

The role of the Writing Lab is to prepare students for collegiate level writing. The Writing Lab provides three services to help us properly execute our mission statement:

  • GE 100 - Grammar and Usage
  • Writing Workshops
  • Independent Labs

GE 100: Grammar and Usage is a developmental course which is required of all entering freshman who fail to meet minimum score requirements on the writing portion of the College Placement Exam. This course is the study and practice of grammar and composition skills with an emphasis placed on paragraph development. This course meets for 50 minutes bi-weekly and is taught by Mrs. Tarsha Rogers.

Writing Workshops: The ASC Writing Lab offers many workshops during the fall and spring semesters. These workshops address topics such as Grammar, How to Write a Research Paper, and citations to name a few.

Independent Labs: The Writing Lab provides the entire University community comprehensive academic enhancement activities outside of the traditional classroom setting. The activities may include supplemental instruction, tutoring, workshops, and one-on-one attention. Students may refer themselves to the Writing Lab or his/her instructor may complete a referral form. Those seeking assistance with the Writing Specialist should stop by Room 114 MH to enroll in an independent lab.
