The Reading/Writing Center offers all Augustana students assistance with reading, writing and study skills. Faculty and peer tutors recommend reading strategies to increase comprehension, retention and vocabulary. Students can consult the Center staff on all stages of the writing process. Assistance is also available for writing personal statements and application letters, improving test-taking and time-management skills, as well as preparing for graduate and professional school admissions tests. Additional assistance is offered to nontraditional students and those for whom English is not a native language. Students may make an appointment by calling the Center during open hours or may drop in as needed. The Reading/Writing Center is located on the fourth floor of the Center for Student Life.
