Writing Center at Aquinas College

Become a Peer Consultant

Aquinas College Writing Center peer consultants enroll in English 265: Writing Center Theory and Practice. Offered every fall semester, this course will utilize writing theory and technique to train students to be peer consultants for the Aquinas College Writing Center. Specifically, the course will equip students to assist Writing Center visitors with key elements of the writing process, including but not limited to: idea generation, thesis development/topic focus, organization, revision, editing, grammar correction (usage and punctuation), discipline-specific documentation and formatting.

Students who successfully complete EH265 have the option to apply for a position on our consulting team. Your first full semester of consulting is an internship semester that can be taken for 1-credit (EH315 Writing Center Practicum) or for service hours. 

Space in EH265 is limited and students must apply to be part of the course. If you are interested in taking this course, please contact Julie Bevins at jlb006@aquinas.edu or Gretchen Rumohr-Voskuil at ghr001@aquinas.edu.
