Writing Center

The Writing Center is a valuable resource to assist CGCC students with their writing needs in all of their college courses. The Writing Center helps students address a wide range of writing concerns, from how to determine whether they have a good thesis, to how to organize their work, revise more effectively, and document sources accurately. The Writing Center at the Pecos Campus is located on the second floor of the Library, room LIB230. Writing tutors are also available at the Williams Campus in Bridget Hall, room BRID114. A schedule of tutoring hours and services is posted at the beginning of each semester.
