Writing Center

The Susquehanna University Writing Center, located in Fisher Hall, Room 202, provides students with assistance in improving critical thinking strategies and writing techniques.Taking a look at students in the Center for Academic Achievement 

At the Writing Center, our approach is co-directive. In other words, the direction of each session is determined by the student through collaboration with the writing assistant. Through discussion, the writing consultant helps the student set an agenda for the session that focuses on higher-order concerns, such as addressing the assignment, writing a clear and concise thesis statement, or organizing the argument in a logical manner.

We respectfully allow students to make their own decisions about how to accomplish the task at hand. We do not tell students what to write, what to think, or how they should feel about writing.

We want Susquehanna students to use our services regularly so they can:

  • Develop and gain confidence in a writing process that balances the writer's and audience's needs 
  • Understand how to prepare for a tutorial 
  • Learn to summarize and make sense of assignments
  • Improve critical thinking skills and learn to ask effective questions
