Testimonials

"Brainstorming with the folks in the GHC Writing Center has helped me tremendously through the honors program. Sometimes I just needed a little push in the right direction to bring my ideas to life and the Writing Center is where I go for it. Also, when writing papers, no matter what pathway you're in, citations play a major role in avoiding plagiarism. I learned so much from the Writing Center. It has made a positive impact on my education, and I will continue to seek their support."
"I went to the GHC Writing Center to get some help with brainstorming and organization. I had no idea where to start with my research project, and I was procrastinating big time. My Writing Assistant, Ms. Harrington, helped me so much, and I will definitely use her again! She is so sweet and helpful and really got me to where I needed to be. She was very patient with me and explained how I could make my writing flow better. She was open to helping me and very easy to talk to. My experience was positive, and I recommend for anyone go and get help from this team!"
"The Writing Center at Georgia Highlands will always have a special place in my heart. I have never been comfortable with writing essays because when I was younger, I struggled with a reading disability. I felt that I was not ready for a college English course because I didn’t always use college level grammar when writing nor would I use a variety of sentence structures. Yet, with the advising help of Professor Harrington, I discovered that I can be confident in my writing. She opened my eyes to new writing skills, and she also made me feel less stressed when I had to write my essays. I cannot even put it in words how much she and the Writing Center mean to me. To every student at Georgia Highlands, if you feel like you are overwhelmed, need help with an essay, or are not confident in your writing, then I highly suggest taking advantage of the resources that the Writing Center has to offer. All it takes Is scheduling an appointment and talking to a Writing Assistant to succeed."
