 Fall Semester, Times Vary.

The Center for Writing Excellence (CWE) offers free one-on-one peer writing support for all UWEC students at any stage of any writing project. CWE writing assistants are recruited from across campus and work with students in every major. They can help you brainstorm topics for papers and multimedia projects, develop thesis statements, organize your sources, focus and revise your arguments, and avoid plagiarism by properly citing sources. They can also help with personal writing (resumes, graduate school applications). The CWE offers support in multiple locations around campus, including McIntyre Library, the Student Success Center in Centennial Hall, the Haas Fine Arts Center, and upper-campus dorms. Visit for more information or to make an appointment.
