Undergraduate Student Services
We're here to assist you with any writing project, at any stage of your writing process. The center's well-trained peer consultants can help you to brainstorm ideas, organize content, integrate research, polish a draft, and correctly document sources.
Any graduate or undergraduate GVSU student can make an appointment or take advantage of our drop-in hours simply by coming into the center with a draft of your writing. If you experience problems scheduling appointments, try using a different web browser. Internet Explorer has been causing problems with scheduling this semester and switching to Safari, Firefox, or Chrome, might help solve the problem. Faculty and staff interested in writing consultations for their own work and our other services can call 331-2922.
The Writing Center is open for regular hours at the following times and locations:
