Open House this Sunday!

On Sunday, September 1, from noon until late, we’ll be hosting an Open House at the Center for Writing and Research.  Come in and meet our Writing Assistants.  No paper required!  Also, we’ll have better-than-usual chocolate available (Lindor, Ghirardelli), so you’ll be rewarded for stopping by to say hello.  See you Sunday!

Come pay us a visit!

The Center for Writing and Research opens for business on the first Sunday after school starts.  This year, that means Sunday, September 1.  We’re open that day, and every Sunday, from noon until 11p.m.  Even if you don’t have a paper that you want to work on, please drop by and meet one of our Writing Assistants. They’ll have special treats for those who visit on Sunday, September 1.  See you then!

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.

For Faculty: Scaffolding

Over twenty Hope College faculty have already signed up for a workshop that aims to improve student paper assignments.  The CWR workshop “Effective Scaffolding for Better Student Papers” will take place on Tuesday, October 30, at 11:00 a.m. in the Maas Conference Room.  Space is still available; send an RSVP to the CWR if you’d like to attend. 

The Writing Assistants are Back!

Many thanks to our fabulous Hope College Writing Assistants who are preparing for the 2012-2013 academic year.  All twenty-five of them have been back on campus for several days, attending workshops and training sessions, so that they can provide the best possible assistance to Hope students.  The CWR opens for business next Sunday; stop by and say hello to your new WAs.

CWR Hours for Finals Week

The CWR is open during Finals Week on a reduced schedule (so that our WA’s can study for, and take, their own finals!).  We will have one WA on staff on Saturday 12-6, Sunday 3-10, Monday 10-4, Tuesday 10-9, and Wednesday 10-7.  Call x7904 to make an appointment, or just drop in.

Make that Appointment!

It’s the last week of the semester, and things are a little crazy over here.  To avoid waiting in line or finding yourself unable to see a Writing Assistant, please make an appointment!  Stop by the Research Help desk, call x7904, or go to http://hope.edu/lib/cwr/appointment.php.
