The AUS runs an Essay Centre, which provides free essay writing assistance from qualified tutors during the Fall and Winter academic semesters. We offer structure, style, grammar and citation assistance. Students must come ready with a printed copy of their essay. Essays cannot simply be dropped off and essay tutors should not be expected to edit papers by email. The Essay Centre is now closed for the fall semester and will reopen on February 2nd, 2015.Drop-in hours
Drop-in hours are Monday to Friday, 12:30-1:30pm, beginning on February 2nd. We are located in the Jack Daniels Room in the Arts Lounge.
