Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program

Writing and Speaking Center Resources

The Writing and Speaking Center offers a wide variety of writing and speaking support services for undergraduate students of all levels and in all disciplines. Our office is staffed by graduate-student writing consultants and undergraduate writing and speaking fellows from the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural and applied sciences. Our tutors provide individualized feedback and assistance on all types of academic writing and speaking. We invite students to use our services during any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming ideas to polishing a final draft. Similarly, students can visit a speaking fellow at any point as they are developing or practicing a presentation. The Writing and Speaking Center is located on the ground floor of Rush Rhees Library, G-121. If you have questions about our services please email stefanie.sydelnik@rochester.edu, stop by our office, or call 273-3577.
