CWR Open Friday and Saturday

We know that things get busier at the end of the semester, so the CWR will be open for a few hours on Friday and Saturday this week: Friday from 11 until 6 and Saturday from 10 until noon. Service will be limited, so it’s still best to make an appointment.

Write a Better Grad School Essay!

The CWR is hosting a workshop on Writing the Graduate School Essay. It will be held on Tuesday, November 8 at 11:00-12:00 and repeated on Wednesday, November 9 at 3:30-4:30. If you’d like to participate, send an e-mail to and let us know which day you plan to attend.

Make that appointment!

Our Writing Assistants have been phenomenally busy offering help-sessions this week. With midterms coming up, you’ll start seeing even more traffic-jams in the CWR. While walk-ins are always welcome, you can avoid waiting in line by signing up for a specific time slot. Call x7904 or click on the “Make an appointment” link at the right.

Welcome to the Center for Writing and Research! This new Hope College service is an extension and expansion of the Writing Corner, which began last year under the leadership of Dr. David Klooster. Please stop by Van Wylen Library and have a look at our redesigned space, just to the right of the Research Help Desk.
