The New Writing Centers at South Plains College are available for all students.
The Writing Centers are provided as a service to help ensure students success. They are available to all students at the Levelland, Reese Center, Lubbock Center and Plainview campuses. They were set up to help students with writing during all the stages that come with writing a paper, from the rough draft to the final copy, and help with citing properly.
Tutors are also available to assist students. There are tutors who are available to schedule times to meet face to face. This service is a great asset to have while attending school, and services are offered for students, faculty, and staff.
The Writing Center on campus is located in room 112 in the Communications Building. It is open Mondays from 11a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m. to 1p.m., and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., on Wednesdays from 2:15 to 4 p.m. on, Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Fridays.
Steven Sanders, an instructor of English, is available to assist students with any questions or concerns students may have.
The SPC Website has set up a page showing all the information that the Writing Centers offer. There are links on the page that students can use as references, such as style guides and grammar help. Printable worksheets are also on the page to help students.
The page includes directions to the Writing Centers, which are located in Room 307E in Building 3 at Reese Center, in The Learning Center at The Lubbock Center, and Room 12 at the Plainview campus. Weekly time schedules are posted so that students can set a side time to go to the Writing Center.
“I would want students to know that there is no need for them to struggle alone with a writing assignment.” said Sharon Race, associate professor of English and chairperson of the English and Philosophy Department, “Don’t sit by yourself and despair over a paper—free help is available on all four campuses. Come and see us!”
Essay deadlines can be stressful, but the Writing Centers at SPC are available to help take away stress from students. Using the Writing Centers can improve writing skills and help learn writing techniques.
