Milne’s Center for Academic Excellence: New Name, Same Services

What once was Milne Library’s Writing & Learning Center – consisting of AOP tutoring services, the satellite center for the English Department’s Writing Learning Center, ELL tutoring and speech buddies program and the Geneseo Testing Center – has officially been renamed to better represent the many helpful services offered in the center.

Welcome to the Milne Center for Academic Excellence!

Center for Academic Excellence

Beginning in January 2012, the English Department’s Writing Learning Center shifted all operations to Milne’s location, supplementing its evening and weekend drop-in hours with regularly scheduled appointments Monday-Friday from 1-5 pm, which had traditionally taken place in Welles Hall.

The Center for Academic Excellence received a new facelift over the winter break as well – new carpeting, a glass panel in the front window, and potentially glass doors to separate the two rooms within the center – all in an effort to make the space comfortable and conducive to studying and testing.

Information regarding the services offered in the center can be found at a newly designed and comprehensive website.

The Writing Learning Centers will open for the Spring 2010 semester on Sunday, January 30.

Writing CenterThe Writing Learning Center has two centers to serve students on campus:

  • Walk in hours in Milne Library Room 210 Monday to Thursday 8 pm to 11 pm and Sunday from 6 pm to 9 pm
  • Help by appointment in Welles 217 Monday – Friday, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  To make an appointment, students should email the Writing Learning Center or call 245-5273.

To make an appointment in Welles 217, students should email the Writing Learning Center or call 245-5273.

Peer tutors are not available for proofreading or writing your assignments. However, they can provide advice on writing assignments in any academic course and at any stage of the writing process. The goal
is to assist students with finding their own solutions.
