Navigating the On-Campus Writing Lab 

Looking to get some extra feedback on your writing, but not sure what to do or where to go? The Purdue On-Campus Writing Lab is here to support you! These resources will help you sign up for the right kind of session for you, set goals and expectations for your appointment, and make the most of your tutoring experience. 

We have a quick and easy overview handout that details what we offer at the Purdue On-Campus Writing Lab. This PDF explains the different types of sessions we offer, tells you how to make an appointment, and clarifies expectations for what to do before, during, and after your tutoring session. 

For a more in-depth explanation of our services, check out our slide deck presentation on Optimizing On-Campus Writing Lab Sessions. This document gives detailed explanations of our three different types of tutoring sessions, shows how to make an appointment using our online schedulerand explains how you can prepare for your session and continue to learn after your visit. 

We also encourage you to watch our peer tutor promo video featuring undergraduate On-Campus Writing Lab tutors. They’ll explain what it’s like to be a peer tutor, why feedback is important for all writers (yes, even good ones!), and the differences between what teachers and tutors can offer writers. They’ll also give some tips and tricks for getting the most out of your Purdue On-Campus Writing Lab tutoring session. Be sure to check out our other videos on our Purdue OWL YouTube channel as well.
