Writing Lab and Tutoring in DHC 002

Shippensburg University’s First-Year Writing Fellows
 Located in the DHC 002 Writing Lab

The First-Year Writing Fellow Program serves all first-year students in Introduction to Academic Writing (ENG 113) and Academic Writing (ENG 114).

Brief overview of how the Writing Fellows serve first-year students:

  • Writing Fellows provide individualized support to students in first-year writing courses; they are paired with first-year writing courses to provide greater individuated tutoring.
  • All First-year writing students (ENG 113 and ENG 114) are required to meet with Writing Fellows to review assignments for these courses throughout the semester.
  • Writing Fellows provide support in one-on-one and group tutoring sessions.
  • Writing Fellows provide support and assistance at any stage of the writing process (prewriting, drafting, and revision).
  • Writing Fellows host “Tutor Talk” workshops to help first-year writing students, but all students across campus are welcome to attend these workshops. Examples of “Tutor Talk” topics include: First Draft Boot Camp; Guide to Thesis Statements; MLA Citation and Formatting; Introductions and Conclusions. All workshops are held in DHC 002 and are advertised across campus.

Writing Lab and Tutoring in DHC 002

The English Department computer lab is conveniently located in Dauphin Humanities Center (DHC) 002. The lab is open to students and is staffed by Writing Fellows, who have been trained to assist students with their writing assignments. Though the Writing Fellows do take walk-ins for tutoring during the hours below, students are encouraged to schedule an appointment to guarantee a tutoring session. Students can schedule an appointment by putting their initials or “reserved” on the sign-up sheet outside DHC 002. This student success initiative serves and supports all first year-students.
