The Rhetoric Center provides free assistance with composing written, visual, and oral assignments. We work with students from all majors with all kinds of papers and speeches at any stage of the creative process. Come to talk about your ideas, to work on organization and structure, to get feedback from an attentive audience, or to work on editing final drafts.


Book an appointment online! You are also free to drop in, and staff members may be able to help you on the spot. (But a warning: we are very busy during midterms and the last several weeks of the semester, so book an appointment to be sure you get the attention you need.)


We are located in Hekman Library 207, near the library checkout desk and across from Peet's Coffee. 


For the Spring 2023 semester, we are open from Monday, January 9 through Thursday, April 20. Our weekly hours are as follows:

Monday–Friday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Monday–Thursday: 7:00 to 9:00 PM
