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 writing matters, including good practices, documentation and grammar.

Appointment Policies

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 not more than three a week. You may not schedule back-to-back appointments.

Canceling Appointments

If you need to cancel an appointment, you can do so from the Make an Appointment link on this page. Please be sure to cancel your appointment at least an hour ahead of time so that another writer can use your available slot. Failure to cancel an appointment will count as a missed session.

Missed Appointments

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, then you will lose your Writing Center privileges for the semester.

Location

Please note that the Writing Center at Babson College is now located in the white trailer across the street from Luksic Hall and Olin Hall. We will be in the trailer until May 2019.

The Writing Center observes the undergraduate calendar and is 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.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

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 Professor Kerry Rourke.
