Eastern Florida State College: Open House

The EFSC-UCF Writing Center will be holding an open house on Tuesday, August 26 and Wednesday, August 27 from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm. You can stop by the EFSC-UCF Writing Center on the EFSC Cocoa Campus, Building 12, Room 331, and meet the consultants and pick-up helpful writing tip sheets.

Faculty: Refer Students to the UWC

The UWC now offers an easy way for faculty to refer students to us for ongoing writing development. Referred students can meet with the same consultant at a regularly-scheduled time each week during the semester, to focus not merely on fixing a single piece of writing, but on building skills for future writing tasks.

Go here to learn more and download the referral form.

Class Presentation Requests

UCF faculty can request a presentation from a Writing Center representative who will provide a brief presentation about UWC services. Please visit our Presentation Request page and specify whether your location is in Cocoa, Daytona, Orlando, or Rosen.

UWC via Adobe Connect

The UWC offers Adobe Connect as an online consultation mode, so you can meet with a consultant from anywhere.

From any computer with internet access, you should be able to:

  • Speak with your consultant via audio connection
  • Revise your paper along with your consultant via screen sharing
  • Have instant access to our handouts and other resources

We strongly recommend using a headset with attached microphone for Adobe Connect consultations. If you don’t have a headset and microphone, you can get full audio on our Connect Consultation Station on the UCF Daytona Beach campus. Select Distance Consulting for more information on Adobe Connect sessions.
