The Writing Center is open

The Writing Center will continue to offer both online and in-person writing consultations through the end of finals week and also during the summer sessions. So if you need some last-minute help this semester or assistance over the summer, the Writing Center continues to be here for you for all your writing needs.

This April, the University held another successful and impressive Research Day. We in the Writing Center are proud to acknowledge the distinguished research of our Undergraduate Tutors, Bridget Guinee and Nicole Cicippio, both of whom presented at this year's University Research Day. Bridget Guinee presented her research on CUA marketing students’ and marketing faculty’s perceptions of student writing. Nicole Cicippio, the Writing Center’s Social Media Coordinator, gave a poster presentation on successful media campaigns for university organizations. Congratulations to both of them for their amazing research!

We also have exciting news to report on Catholic University Writing Center’s broader impact on Catholic education in our local community. This semester, the Writing Center began a partnership with DC independent Catholic high school, St. Jerome Institute, to offer tutorial services at the Institute campus two days a week. Two of our undergraduate tutors, Javier Mazariegos and Matthew Sawtelle, have been conducting sessions with the students, providing our usual support with all aspects of writing at any stage of the writing process – but this time to freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors at the high school level. We are grateful for our time at the Institute and for the opportunity to work with their wonderful student writers! We look forward to continuing the collaboration next academic year.

Every spring semester, we in the Writing Center are filled with mixed emotions as we have to say goodbye to some of our tutors and instructors. We are so grateful for the work of our staff, who do so much to help our writers, and we want to say a special word of thanks to undergraduate tutor, Eva Lynch, to Robert Sherron, to Amy Marter, and to our newest Ph.D., Outreach Coordinator, Dr. Hannah Bormann. We wish you all the best in the great work you will do in the future, and we will miss you!
