Writing Lab - UD has a very helpful Writing Lab, offering individual 30-minute tutoring sessions for UD students working on essays, regardless of the subject or the student's writing abilities. After each session, the tutor sends a Writing Lab Report to the professor who assigned the essay, summarizing the session and suggestions. The Writing Lab is open Sunday through Friday, with appointments available as early as 10:00 a.m. and as late as 10:00 p.m. A tutoring session may be reserved by signing up for an appointment outside the Lab in Braniff 304 or online here
