How to join the Writing Center Drop-in Zoom Room using a computer

You can also join Zoom meetings using a smartphone. Here is a YouTube video we recommend with more information about how to download the Zoom app and join a meeting on your phone: How to Join Zoom Video Conference Using Your Phone

Although it is possible to join our Zoom meeting with only a landline, we recommend simply calling our phone number instead. Our phone number is (541) 917-4708. We can help you set up a phone conference appointment if you aren't able to use Zoom but would still like to meet with someone to get feedback on your writing. 

 

How to Make a Zoom Appointment Using TutorTrac

All Learning Center appointments will be held via Zoom video conferencing for the remainder of Summer Term 2020. The process for scheduling a Zoom appointment with us is the same as scheduling an in-person appointment. If you are currently enrolled in a credit class, you are already set-up with an account in TutorTrac.

About Us

The Writing Center is a place for all students to get free assistance with their writing. Our goal is to coach you through the writing process, help you to strengthen your writing, and give you the steps to become your own best editor. We do this primarily by talking to you in a one-on-one session or by sending you written feedback. When we meet with you, we want to know what your writing goals are, and together, we will determine the next steps for our time together.

Our mission is to help you navigate the complicated landscape of academic writing. We cannot guarantee an error-free paper or that you will receive a perfect grade after working with us; however, we can guarantee that we will stay present, listen with respect, and respond with compassion while working with you. Our Writing Assistants are successful student writers who have been trained to provide writing feedback. By offering you individualized writing support, we can help you to identify what is already working well in your writing, as well as what needs more attention. As you practice new skills and refine your writing process, we are here to be your cheerleaders, guides, and allies.

Although we hope to resume in-person services in the future, the Writing Center will continue to work remotely until determined otherwise.
