Writing Center Mission

At Franklin & Marshall College, writing is a vital part of your education, and one of the most important ways in which you explore and connect ideas as you learn. For this reason, you will have writing assignments, ranging from lab reports to critical reviews to lengthy term papers, in most of your college courses.

To help you with these assignments and other kinds of writing that you do, the College has established the Writing Center, staffed by student writing assistants. The Center is a place where you can come to talk about your work, to discuss and clarify your ideas, to improve your style. This process benefits any and all writers -- from first-year students composing a first college paper or preparing an initial PowerPoint presentation, to those writing seminar papers or honors theses.


Diagnothian Hall, Room 200

Students requiring accommodation, please call the Writing Center (717-291-3866) to make arrangements.
