What is the ECSU OWL?

The ECSU OWL is an academic-support resource that is designed to assist ECSU writing students in every stage of the writing process. Students can make appointments with the ECSU OWL for a face-to-face consultation, or they may submit an essay to our ECSU e-mail account. Within 48 hours, our staff will respond.

The ECSU OWL is proud to have some of the brightest ECSU Vikings on our staff. Our writing consultants are dedicated to making each ECSU OWL experience productive and pleasant. In addition, our entire staff is committed to providing the necessary writing support to the university's First-Year and other student-writers.

Supporting Our Students

ECSU Students are invited to come to the ECSU OWL to have a writing consultation at any stage of the writing process. Our writing consultants will assist students as early as the brainstorming stage through the final editing stage. In addition, students can use the computers in the ECSU OWL to conduct assignment-related research and can even visit the lab anytime during operating hours for a walk-in appointment.

Supporting Our Faculty

Faculty can refer students to the ECSU OWL. Students will be assisted in the areas that are specified by referring faculty and will also receive an evaluation of the session by the Writing Consultant who works with the student. The ECSU OWL is an excellent resource for faculty who seek to support their teaching and office hours with "extra help" for student writers. In addition, faculty are invited to send writing resources and tips to the ECSU OWL to be added to our website and in-house resource library.
