Make an Appointment
The Babson College Writing Center supports students in all stages of the writing process. From course papers to internship applications to cover letters, Faculty and Peer Writing Consultants are trained to help you strengthen your writing skills.
During each thirty-minute session, a Writing Consultant will meet one-on-one with you to discuss your written work. Writing Consultants are not editors but they will help you to become a stronger writer through offering support and guidance on all matters, including good writing practices, documentation and grammar.
We value each appointment and hope that you will visit the Writing Center often. So that everyone has the opportunity to take advantage of our services, we ask that you limit your visits to no more than one a day and no more than three a week. You may not schedule back-to-back appointments.
If you need to cancel an appointment, you can do so here. Please make sure to cancel at least FOUR hours ahead of time so that another writer can use your available slot. Failure to cancel an appointment, will count as a missed session.
We understand that schedules can change, but our time slots are in demand. We will allow for one missed appointment and will send you an e-mail to remind you of your oversight. If you miss a second appointment, you will lose your scheduling privileges for the semester.
The Writing Center is located in Babson Hall 205 facing the Fountain of Flags courtyard. You can either directly enter into the Writing Center from the courtyard or through Babson Hall itself.
The Writing Center will open Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
Hours for the fall semester are:
Sunday 3:00 – 9:00 PM
Monday 12:00 – 9:30 PM
Tuesday 12:00 – 9:30 PM
Wednesday 12:00 – 9:30 PM
Thursday 12:00 – 5:00 PM

We observe and are closed on all Babson holidays and vacations.
Before your Session
In preparation for your appointment, please print out a copy of the paper assignment and/or writing prompt and bring a copy of your current draft. Reflect beforehand on what will be the most helpful use of your time during your visit.
Note: you must use your Babson e-mail to establish an appointment. You can create a new password. You can book an appointment up to two weeks in advance.
We look forward to working with you! Should you have any questions or suggestions for the Writing Center, please contact Prof. Carolyn Megan.
