The CRW is Supporting You Virtually and In-Person

The Center for Reading and Writing offers one-on-one consulting sessions in writing and reading to students on all academic levels, both virtually and in-person. We can help you in all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to polishing final papers. If you need reading strategies to help with difficult texts, we are here to assist with those, too. We also offer a wide variety of workshops from study skills to MLA, APA, and Chicago documentation styles. CRW services are open to all Ramapo students.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Fall 2021 – Welcome Back!!

The Center for Reading and Writing will open for virtual writing/reading sessions and workshops on September 13th. Students can make appointments via Connect. Sessions are available daily, including evenings and weekends. Facilitated by peer consultants and professional staff, sessions can be scheduled up to 10 PM the night before the requested time.

Beginning September 10th, students can also register for our free 45-minute workshops on writing, reading, study skills, and time management. Workshops will be held on Webex exclusively for the month of September. For more information on making appointments, and details on the workshops, see below.

Beginning October 1st, after the CRW relocates to the new Learning Commons, in-person sessions and workshops will be available. We can’t wait to see you in the Learning Commons! Stay tuned for updates.

________________________________

How to Schedule Appointments:  Appointments should be scheduled by 10:00 PM the night before the requested time, whether in-person or virtual. To make appointments, go to the “My Success Network” page in Connect and click on “Your Services.” In-person appointments are available Monday-Friday, during the day, with peer consultants and professional staff. Virtual appointments are available with peer consultants six days a week, both during the day and into the evening. Session length is approximately 40 minutes.

Virtual Appointments : In advance of your virtual appointment, your consultant will invite you to a Webex meeting by sending you a link. Also, you will need video and audio access (a camera, a microphone, and speakers or headphones).

GRADUATE AND ADULT DEGREE COMPLETION STUDENTS can also schedule appointments using Connect.

NOTE: BECAUSE THE WORK WE DO IN THE CENTER IS PRIMARILY INTENDED TO SUPPORT CRITICAL THINKING AND REVISION, WE WILL POLITELY REFUSE TO MEET WITH STUDENTS THE DAY AN ASSIGNMENT IS DUE. Critical thinking and revision cannot be rushed, and, if you don’t have time to reflect on the work you want to do in the Center, then now is not the time for you to visit. Please plan ahead to make the most of your session.

Also, please note that it is against CRW policy to permit back-to-back sessions.

Workshops

Additionally, the Center offers Student Workshops on a range of topics from writing the argument paper to critical reading and MLA, APA, and Turabian/Chicago style guidelines. These 45-minute workshops are facilitated by Center staff, faculty, and peer consultants. Click below for a list of upcoming workshops.
