The Writing Workshop is Officially Open for the Semester!

spongebob-essay-memeFrom Ford Fellow Gabe Borelli ’16:

Writing is hard. Sometimes we make mistakes. But whether you like it, love it, or hate it, writing is a part of life here at Wes. And sometimes it’s hard to get our ideas into just the shape we want them.

But fear not! Professor Meg Furniss Weisberg and I have just the solution! We’re excited to announce that the Writing Workshop has officially re-opened its doors as of Monday, September 12th.

At the Writing Workshop a staff of trained peer tutors is available to meet with you at every stage of the writing process. You can meet with a tutor to discuss ideas for an upcoming assignment, edit a rough draft of a paper, or review a professor’s comments on completed work. Everyone is welcome and all services are free. Make an appointment through your E-portfolio (click on “Writing Workshop”) or stop by during drop-in hours. One-on-one appointment slots last 45 minutes (though you do not have to use the whole time period), and all Workshop Tutors will be taking drop-in students in the event that there are un-booked appointments when you decide to drop in.

If you have any questions, please contact Ford Fellow Gabriel Borelli at (860) 685-2440 or writingworks(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Bystander Intervention Training

Nikita Ragjopal ’17 writes in:

Become an active bystander by registering for Wesleyan’s bystander intervention training! Empowered bystanders make the campus community safer by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. Intervening with peers can be difficult for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively. The training features two distinct and separate tracks: sexual violence prevention and alcohol use intervention. The next training is Monday, September 19, 2016. Register here!

Date: Monday, September 19
Time: 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Place: TBA; participants will receive instructions after signing up
