Holiday closing

Germanna will be closed Monday, Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Writing Center

We offer walk-in consultations for all students who are enrolled in credit courses. Faculty, staff, and trained tutors are available to help students with writing assignments across all academic disciplines. Whether the coursework is a descriptive paragraph, a lab report, or a research paper, our consultants will provide assistance with understanding the assignment, citation styles, grammar rules, organization, and developing a thesis statement.

Online assistance

Online writing assistance is also available through Smarthinking. Our goal is to help students become confident college writers; therefore, consultants will not edit or proofread papers. Instead, our goal is to empower students with the ability to become independent writers.
