University Writing Center opens
satellite center inside Founders
NIU’s University Writing Center, in collaboration with Founders Memorial Library, has opened a satellite site in Founders 302.
The site will be open from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Appointments will be walk-in only on a first come-first serve basis.

- Discuss topics and ideas
- Develop strategies in planning, organizing and developing drafts
- Discover effective uses of sources and correct documentation
- Understand professors’ writing assignments more clearly
- Identify better ways to use language
- Learn appropriate methods of persuading readers
- Integrate critical reading and thinking skills in your written work
- Become more aware of the different types of writing that various disciplines require
- Prepare résumés and applications for internships, scholarships or jobs
