Understanding Writing Assignments
- Visit the Samuel Rudin Academic Resource Center (Rudin Center) in Amend Hall for assistance in writing your paper and citing sources or stop by the Research Desk in Ryan Library.
- The section, Academic Writing, on the Purdue Online Writing Lab (Purdue OWL) has resources that will help you with the types of writing you may encounter while in college.
- Read the helpful section on the writing process: pre-writing (invention), developing research questions and outlines, composing thesis statements, and proofreading.
- If the assignment is still unclear, contact your professor. You may stop by the Reference Desk in the Library, also.
