The Writing Center

The Writing Center at Cornerstone University is a writing resource available at no cost to students enrolled in traditional undergraduate studies. We offer individual sessions with a peer writing tutor in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. Our writing tutors are eager to assist students with all aspects of the writing process:

  • Generating ideas
  • Getting a fresh perspective
  • Making points stronger
  • Improving sentence structure
  • Revising and editing
  • Research
  • Formatting

The goal of the Writing Center is to produce more confident, thoughtful, and effective writers.


The Writing Center is located on the first floor in Miller Library.


Hours vary each semester and are posted on Eagle’s Nest and the Miller Library website. Generally, the Writing Center is open weekday afternoons and three to four evenings a week.


To schedule an appointment, please email or stop by the center during open hours. Walk-ins are welcome and will be assisted between appointments.
