Mission Statement

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University's Writing Center exists to help students write better papers and become better writers. We offer an informational atmosphere where students can bring questions to their peers. Our one-on-one sessions allow both the tutor and the student to work through procedures and strategies in order to help improve the student's writing abilities. We are resources in all stages of the writing process, from brain-storming to perfecting a final draft. We do not proofread papers; rather, we believe in the value of teaching students how to brainstorm, how to organize their thoughts, how to clarify their assertions, how to recognize and fix their grammar mistakes, and so on. We believe in teaching students skills they can use in all their writing. Each session is intended to reach beyond a specific assignment.
