Writing Center

The Writing Center provides support for any credit students who need assistance with reading and writing. Students enrolled in English 512-514 classes spend two hours per week completing lab assignments that compliment classroom instruction as part of their course credit. Additionally, ESL students complete one hour per week in the lab working on lab assignments (which are assigned by the instructor). Students who are not enrolled in English 512-514 or ESL Writing skills may register for the half-unit Writing Center course, English 306, in order to fully utilize the lab. Faculty tutors and lab staff are available to help students address individual reading and/or writing issues. Students may use computers, study independently, or work in groups.

SPOTLIGHT

Christine Calvert

Christine Calvert
Basic Law Enforcement Academy Student

"I wanted to get into law enforcement. I chose to put myself through the academy to prepare myself better for employment. Allan Hancock College has made a tremendous difference in my life. It has allowed me to create lifelong friendships. [The instructors] encourage us in a traditional manner that is physically challenging, yet they're very concerned about us being educated."
