The New and Improved Drop-In

The New and Improved Drop In
by Lindsay Meaning

With the start of the fall semester, the Wilfrid Laurier Writing Centre has shaken things up by implementing a new schedule for appointments and drop-in hours. This new schedule has set aside every Thursday, all day, for students to drop in without a pre-scheduled appointment in order to get help with any aspect of their academic writing assignments. There will be two tutors available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and three tutors available from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

This new schedule will make it easier for students to find time between classes to visit the Writing Centre. Appointments will be scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
