Undergraduate Students

One thing we can guarantee, as you move through your curriculum at UB, you are going to be writing a lot.  And, most students find writing projects to be among the most challenging and stressful things about college.   Even the most talented writers experience the struggle. There are so many choices, dilemmas and uncertainties in the writing process.  It can raise anxiety.  And what do we do when we get anxious?   We avoid!  Hence, the classic procrastination scenario.   That's why some of the most motivated and successful students are regular visitors at the writing center.  Then it's just a natural progression to have support when it comes time for those graduate school applications, job letters, fellowships and scholarships.  Next thing you know, you're a success story!    

Hot tip:  Have your assignment sheet at the ready.   

My consultant was really enthusiastic about reading my paper and made me feel confident about my writing.

I felt like I was ready to keep working after my meeting, and felt uplifted rather than discouraged!

We can also help you things like scholarship applications, personal statements, job letters and other really important pieces of writing.
