Writing Center now located in Newman Learning Commons


Writing Center help

Jan. 22, 2012 – The Virginia Tech Writing Center has moved to Newman Library's second floor learning commons, just past the elevators. It is a free service for all Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, at all levels.

They work with writing and reading assignments from any course in the University. They can also help you with writing projects that are not linked to classes. While they try to accommodate walk-in sessions when possible, they strongly encourage you to make an appointment.
