Working on a final paper? Writing Center here to help

Working on a final paper? Visit Mississippi State University's Writing Center and spend 30 or 60 minutes working with a writing tutor who can help you develop ideas to start writing; develop, expand, and organize your existing writing; or work with you to develop self-editing techniques to polish your work before handing it in. The center has added more than 40 hours of tutoring to its schedule to help MSU's writers make their end-of-semester deadlines.

And the service is completely free.
