Writing Center

As you know, the more you speak, the more fluent you become! The same is true about writing; your writing will improve greatly with more practice. Come in often for help with short assignments or questions about how to construct a clean, logical paper. Vocabulary or grammar questions are also welcome.

Regular visits are best. For example, you could plan for two half-hour appointments per week. Interlink students may sign up for appointments when they are enrolled in a Valpo course.

Strategies For Academic Success Course – GS-100 (Fall or Spring Semesters)

Strategies for Academic Success is a seminar designed to offer insight into learning strategies and study skills that complement individual learning styles and promote students’ academic achievement. Through focused discussion on course materials, peer interaction, skill development, self-assessment, and other activities, students will explore competencies important to development as a college student. Students will discover how they learn best and what hinders their learning. With increased understanding about their learning styles and preferences, students will identify the best practices for improving academic performance and achieving their college goals.
