Students: To continue academic support of your writing needs in these unprecedented times, our Writing Center Mentor, Dr. Atkinson-Loveless will be available to provide live assistance and timely feedback via email during regular NSH hours. You may submit your papers for review to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
“Cadets who submit papers during other times can expect an email response within 24 hours.”
“When emailing your paper, please attach a copy of the instructor’s assignment and an indication of the type of feedback you are desiring: grammar, MLA formatting, thesis statement construction and support, etc. Please do not expect a completely edited copy of your paper to be returned to you, as the purpose of the Writing Center is to help you learn how to produce a written assignment, not to complete a final edit to ensure a high grade. As always, please seek assistance early.”
The Writing Center is open to all cadets during Night Study Hall for writing assistance. A Writing Center Mentor is available to assist in all aspects of the writing process as well as understanding assignments, MLA formatting, thesis statement construction, proofreading, spelling, and basic grammar mechanics. Tutors will not write or rewrite a paper for a cadet. Cadets must check-in at the Writing Center and bring a copy of the instructor’s assignment. Come early, regularly, and do not wait until the last minute or night before the assignment is due to receive extensive writing assistance.
In support of New Mexico Military Institute’s mission and educational objectives, the Writing Center supports student-writing improvement and enhances opportunities for academic success through individualized help, handouts, and Internet resources and links. Our goal is to assist students in developing writing skills that will empower them to be successful in the academic environment and compete in a global economy.
