Center for Writing Excellence



The University Writing Center, located in the basement of Collier Library, offers individual or group consultations. Consultations may either be in-house or online; however, we prefer to reserve online consultations for students living outside of the Shoals area.

Consultants will assist with any written homework assignment, from any course, in any major, for the entirety of your UNA career. They will even help with resumes, cover letters, graduate school application essays, and personal writing, such as poetry or fiction.

Please view this presentation [PPT / PDF] to learn more about what the University Writing Center does.
