Incoming 1st Year Students

Every summer we hold a three day Summer Academic Writing Clinic (SAWC). SAWC is an opportunity to learn about the expectations of university level writing before you write your first paper. 

The Writing Support Centre also offers one-to-one sessions with a writing advisor by appointment or at our Weldon Drop-In Centre. We also offer workshops and seminars, and online resources designed for first year students.

Writing ability is a major factor in academic success so take advantage of the programs and services provided by Western's Writing Support Centre.
