Students may visit the West Campus Communications Center and Writing Center in Building 5, Room 155, for support services for reading, writing, English and speech skills. The centers also supports EAP (English for Academic Purposes) students seeking to improve their communication and language skills in all academic areas.
If students need help with grammar, citations and even Microsoft Office, this is the place to turn to for help. Instructors and lab assistants are available to answer questions and assist with skill practice.
