COVID-19 Update: Thinking of you at this time!

In light of the College's recent decision to extend spring break and continue the semester remotely, the physical offices and labs in the SMART Space will be closed until further notice. We will, however, be offering virtual coaching and tutoring through Smarthinking & Google Hangouts Meet.

The Champlain Writing Center provides free one-with-one writing support for all members of the Champlain community. Writing center consultants work with students on a wide-range of writing topics, including brainstorming ideas, topics selection, understanding assignments, essay organization and sentence-level revisions. The consultants are also trained to work with the writing you do outside of class as well. For example, the staff is prepared to discuss creative writing projects, cover letters and public writing composed by the students, staff and faculty at Champlain.

The Champlain Writing Center is in the SMART space, located on the second floor of the Miller Information Commons.
