What We Do In The Writing Center:

All students at Suffolk Community College are welcome to work on and/or discuss any type of writing project in the Writing Center. Some specific areas of assistance include:

Working with you to help generate ideas for your writing

Discussing strategies for organization, development, and final review of your work

Access to Gateway and Mac computers, MS Word, and the Internet

Access to a variety of handouts covering various grammatical and documentation concerns

Helping with writing projects outside of school such as resumes

All You Do:

Walk in any time during Writing Center hours and sign in. Often there is no waiting to see a tutor. (Thirty-minute appointments are available if you do not want to risk a wait. Please call ahead for appointments.)

Work alone or with a tutor

Actively discuss your writing if you choose to work with a tutor

Realize that your piece of writing and the ideas that make up your writing are valuable no matter where you are in the writing process. We can work with you to develop your writing to its fullest potential.

Bring a zip disc for the Mac computers or a regular disc for the Gateways. (Regular discs are available for $1.00) You can type your papers, print them out, and discuss them with tutors all in the same place.

Make the Writing Center your habit for the semester! Come and see us every week.


The Ammerman Campus Writing Center is now open for the fall 2003 semester (Monday-Thursday, 9-8 p.m. and Friday 9-1 p.m.). If you are teaching a class on campus this semester, be sure to let your students know about us. They can come in at any time during business hours--no appointment necessary--and get help with their work, regardless of where they are in the writing process (from first outline to final draft). They can also type and print out their work and/or search the internet on any one of our new Gateway computers.  We can even give your class a formal introduction to the center and tell  them all about the services that we provide. We will send one of our tutors to your room at the beginning of your class or, if you prefer, you can even bring your class into the center and we can show them the center's facilities in person. If you are interested in setting up an introduction to the Writing Center for your class, give us a call at ext. 4150 during business hours or send us a note with your name, your course information (title, course number, day and time, and room number), and a phone number or e-mail address where we can reach you to: the Writing Center, Islip Arts 101.

Have a great semester!
