CRW is Supporting You Remotely

The Center for Reading and Writing offers one-on-one, face-to-face consulting sessions in writing and reading. We encourage ALL Ramapo students to visit the Center. Whether you want to improve your reading or learn strategies for strengthening your writing, we have the people and the resources to help you.

SPRING 2021: The Center will open on Monday, Feb. 1, at 10:00 AM for sessions. Workshops will begin on February 3rd. The complete schedule can be found below.

How to make Appointments:  All sessions are by APPOINTMENT and should  be scheduled by 10:00 PM the night before the requested time. To make appointments, go to the “My Success Network” page in Connect. The Center for Reading and Writing can be found at the bottom of the page under “Your Services.” Virtual appointments are available with peer consultants seven days a week, both during the day and into the evening. Professional staff are available for appointments during normal college business hours. Session length is approximately 40 minutes.

IMPORTANT: In advance of your session, 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 Center 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.
