First-Year Writing Program Resources
You’ll find answers to the most popular student questions on our FAQ page.
We hope to make the first-year experience as enjoyable and enriching as possible. We have included a number of program and campus resources for you.
The Writing Center
The Writing Center is a free service open to all Boise State students. It is a place where students and faculty can find support for their writing efforts. It is staffed by Writing Consultants, graduate and undergraduate students who have taken special training in how to help people with writing. They are called Writing Consultants because consulting is what they do. You bring the writing, and they consult with you on ways to develop, organize, revise, or edit.
The purpose of the Boise State University Tutorial Program is to enhance the academic success of Boise State University students by supplying effective facilitation in a manner that will improve academic skills while developing mastery of subject material. Student independence rather than tutor dependence will be the emphasis of the tutorial program.
