Writing The Academic Paper

Writing in the Disciplines: First Year Writing. It's no secret that the transition from high school to college can be stressful. A lot of first-year students are nervous about the workload they're expected to take on, particularly when it comes to writing. Whether you are an incoming student or someone who simply feels the need to fine tune your writing skills, it never hurts to get a little advice from those of us who have been around for a while! (from the U of Richmond)

The W&L Writing Center offers individual tutorial assistance to students on any college writing task, from papers and lab reports in any stage of completion to resumes and application essays. Open evenings on the main level of Leyburn Library, the Center is directed by an English Department faculty member and staffed by upperclass students in various major fields chosen for their superior writing and teaching abilities.

The Writing Program at Dartmouth College has a clear website to guide students in writing for particular disciplines. It gives advice to non-majors and provides examples of how to construct an argument in the various disciplines.
