Writing Center: Welcome


The Writing Center at ORU provides free service to any ORU student who needs help with academic writing. Our tutors assist students at every stage of the writing process:

  • developing and organizing ideas
  • using correct grammar and punctuation
  • integrating research and
  • using various academic formats.

Walk in sessions are available, but whenever possible, please schedule an appointment.

Also check out our resources on this site under the tabs for Grammar, Style, Citation Formats, and Avoiding Plagiarism.

Services Available

At the Writing Center, tutors will work with you individually to help you improve your writing skills. This generally involves reading over a paper together with you, responding to your particular concerns, identifying areas you can improve, and providing suggestions for further practice. Since this process is most effective during a face-to-face meeting with a tutor in the Writing Center, you may not drop off a paper (either in hard-copy or electronically).

Employment Opportunities

Tutoring positions are open for students who:

  • have at least sophomore standing
  • are eligible for work study
  • have demonstrated superior academic writing skills and
  • are interested in mentoring fellow students.
