As an athlete, these options make the center available to me, despite my busy schedule between practices and workouts. Alongside providing options for the entire student body, the center also provides reliability. With the difficult qualifications necessary for becoming a tutor at the center I feel as though I can trust the information that I am receiving, while at the same time working with an empathetic peer. I feel that this ideal alone is what makes the center a great apparatus.
No matter how much time I spend in a classroom there are countless instances when I walk out feeling as though the professor has not fully assisted me. Utilizing the tutors of the writing center eliminates this feeling. The more resources I am surrounded by, the more information I can receive. The center provides an endless amount of resource with the wide variety of staff they provide. Not only can you receive one-on-one tutorial, but even writing workshops. These workshops are targeted towards specific writing techniques and ideals; in an effort to further advance a student’s writing methods. This array of assistance makes the growth of essay writing seem easy. The UCA Writing Center will without question be an advisory tool that I will take advantage of throughout my years at UCA.
