Mount Saint Mary College writing center puts on lemonade stand on campus

The Mount Saint Mary College Writing Center served up refreshment with a side of helpful writing advice at a pop-up lemonade stand on Monday, May 6.
 
As the weather heats up and the semester wains, Mount students are diligently working on their final papers. And the tutors of the Writing Center are ready to lend them a hand if they need it.
 
The Writing Center sponsors a variety events for students throughout the year. The center’s tutors assist Mount students in all stages of the writing process, including brainstorming and organizing ideas; structuring sentences, paragraphs, and essays; strengthening argumentation; incorporating research; appropriate systems of citation; and improving grammar and style.
 
“Our goal is for every writer to learn and practice at least one writing skill during every consultation,” explained Gina Evers, director of the Mount’s Writing Center. “When writers leave the center, we want them to feel confident in their ability and know what the next steps are for their continued improvement.”
 
On Saturday, May 18, more than 600 Mount students will enjoy the fruits of their scholarship at the college’s 56th Annual Commencement Ceremony.
