Writing and Speaking Support
Writing and Speaking support at NC State includes two centers: Writing and Speaking Tutorial Services (WSTS) for undergraduates and the Graduate Writing Center (GWC) for graduate students. Both centers have primary locations in the University Tutorial Center at 101 Park Shops. WSTS and the GWC are committed to a peer-centered model of writing support. Graduate and undergraduate students train to provide feedback for writers based on clarity, structure and organization. The consultant's goal is to make sure the writer's ideas are communicated clearly and effectively to the intended audience. Grammatical issues are addressed as they impact the meaning and clarity of the writing. While consultants are not editors, they work with writers to help them become better editors of their own work.

WSTS & GWC Consultants in the World!
Like the rest of the Wolfpack, WSTS Consultants found warm and interesting ways to spend their Spring Break.
Brooklynn joined a CSELPS Alternative Service Break trip to Italy. Here's what she had to say, "We spent time volunteering at food shelters and visiting non-profit organizations. We got to see all of the awesome scenary of Italy as well, and I learned the sky really is the limit when setting your goals."
Daniel and his family visited Disney world for the first time.
He said, "It was an incredible trip." (It must have been a great trip since he seems to be getting along with his sister, and we all know how hard that can be.)
Even in the snowy wilds of Michigan, Jenn found a way to appreciate coastal life.
Jenn had this to say about her break, "In between beautiful winter snowfalls, one of which cancelled local schools and brought us 9 inches of snow, my mom and I took a road trip to Ohio to visit the Toledo Museum of Art. While there, we were able to explore the Tuileries Gardens of Paris and I may or may not have been viciously attacked by a lobster masquerading as a painting." (Do we really think snowfalls are beautiful after so many this winter?)
Whatever you did for Spring Break, we hope it was fun, relaxing, and that you are ready to face the end of the semester. Brooklynn, Daniel, Jenn, and all the WSTS/GWC staff are certainly ready to help you with your writing and speaking projects.
