SDSU Writing Center

The Writing Center is a FREE service for SDSU students and faculty located in Love Library LLA 1103, near the checkout counter (first floor in the dome).  The Center is designed not primarily to edit or "fix" students' papers, but to help students improve their writing within specific disciplinary contexts and to help faculty develop meaningful, effective writing assignments. The staff can help you on any academic writing project at any stage.
