Welcome to the Center for Writing and Speaking (COWS), Whitties!

**IN ORDER TO MEET IN PERSON, YOU MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED AND PRESENT NO COVID SYMPTOMS**  Online appointments are available for those in isolation.

We are open most afternoons and evenings, except Friday and Saturday (COWS need weekends too). When you create an account, you will need to use your Whitman email. After logging in, you can see the schedule of when tutors are available in the COWS and online for consultation. The COWS is located in Olin 191, facing Ankeny field. Our writing and speaking tutors are trained to help with any kind of project at any stage in the project. It is helpful if you bring the assignment sheet or prompt with you and any other materials you are using.

Who We Are:

We are not bovine. We are human peer academic writing and speaking coaches! All peer coaches in the COWS have been trained in peer tutoring and writing processes and continue to receive professional development while they work for the COWS. We are students from sophomore-senior levels and across all academic divisions. We enjoy brainstorming, organizing, and sometimes even editing for grammatical issues, but most of all, we enjoy talking with you about what you want to do with your writing and speaking.

It's a mootiful day to write!
