English Professor Krista Stonerock, Writing Center Director at Ohio Christian University (OCU), recently presented “Connecting the University Writing Center to the First-Year Experience” at the Conference for Writing Program Administrators in Sacramento, California.
Dr. Stonerock described how the OCU Writing Center serves as a critical resource for at-risk students during their first year at the university. Citing reflective logs of peer tutors and surveys of first-year students that illuminate the concerns and successes of the Writing Center, she described how the center is poised to benefit first-year writers.
Stonerock observed that “Writing centers have been working hard to overcome old perceptions that they exist for remediation. Today, they have the broader mission of benefiting all student writers.”
