From the Paper:

"Writing Centers were created to assist students in improving their writing skills, gain the knowledge to increase the quality of students' literary work, and to promote collaboration and communication, not only between tutor and student, but also between peers. Writing Centers can be found at nearly every University and offer students an incredible opportunity to improve their writing. The Writing Center, at KSU, provides an invaluable experience, using peer tutoring to enrich the student's skills as a writer and provides students with a free outlet to improve their writing experience. Whether a student is an English major or a Science major, these Centers are open to all different kinds of students who desire to receive knowledge and the assistance of their peers. Although The Writing Center is free to those who want the aid of the faculty and tutors, there are a several factors that seem to keep students away from receiving the full advantage of this convenience."
