Do more than just write a paper – write a professional and thoughtful paper: you'll do that here.

The Center for Writing Excellence provides writing support to the faculty, staff, and students of Southeast, as well as writers from beyond the campus. The Center has three main areas of activity: writing support through our Writing Lab, writing in the disciplines, and writing assessment.

The feedback I received on my paper really helped me, and I felt so much better about my assignment. Writing is not my strong suit, but I will be using the Writing Lab from now on and telling more students about this great helpful resource. Thank you so much!

Writing Lab

The Writing Lab, located in Kent Library 311, provides face-to-face writing support to university and community clients. The consultants in the Writing Lab will help you with your writing at any stage of the process.

Writing in the Disciplines

Southeast approaches writing in the disciplines (WID) differently from many other institutions. While other institutions have designated WID courses, Southeast integrates writing throughout the General Education program on the basis of the written communication objective.

Writing Proficiency Exams

Do more than just write a paper: express your ideas, argue your perspective, share your knowledge.
