Writing Center

Perhaps you've heard that no one cares about your grades once you leave the halls of academia. While that notion holds some truth, it is equally true that most potential employers do care about writing skills. They care so much that they bemoan the poor preparation of the entry-level pool of graduates. In a labor force full of mediocre writers, someone who writes well is bound to stand out and succeed.

Let's be honest: not everything you learn in college is crucial. But learning to write is crucial. If you have difficulty writing, let us help!

Biola's Writing Center is a place where students of all disciplines and writing abilities can discuss their writing with a trained consultant, designed to provide feedback and assessment of papers in progress. The Writing Center emphasizes the process of writing and strives to produce a student’s best possible work through guided questions and suggestions for improvement — it is not an editing or proofreading service. The Center is open to all Biola students, both under- and post-graduate. Whether you need guidance in developing your thesis about the origins of antidisestablishmentarianism, or navigating the zany rules surrounding semicolons, we are here for you! Assistance is provided on a walk-in basis or by appointment. Please phone the office for further information.
