The Undergrad Research & Writing Studio (URWS) and Graduate Writing Center (GWC) are Writing Center support services for students and faculty at Oregon State University. The mission of the Writing Center is providing writing programs that enable students at all levels to function effectively, efficiently, and confidently in an academic environment.
The Undergrad Research & Writing Studio and Graduate Writing Center are relaxed and friendly places where you can work with fellow students who will give you concrete feedback and advice on how to improve your writing. Our writing consultants are skilled readers and writers who can help you work on a project by assisting you with revising, brainstorming, and/or writer’s block. They can also answer specific questions about grammar, citing sources, and format. They can provide special assistance with particular writing issues or just be the kind of skilled reader who can help you improve your work.
In addition to our face-to-face services, we also offer the Online Writing Lab, a service for submitting papers online. All of our services are free.
