Grammar Workshop reviews topics such as sentence structure, comma usage, semicolon usage, apostrophes, subject/verb agreement, pronoun/antecedent agreement, and point of view. These are typically our most popular workshops. We strongly recommend reserving a space.

APA WorkshoP

Audience Awareness

1 Session
Tuesday, March 5, 1 - 2 pm

You have ideas, but are you conveying those ideas in a credible manner? This workshop will help you find your academic tone. What is the correct POV for scholarly writing? How do you avoid weak and passive verbs? What logical fallacies are preventing you from persuading your audience? Students who attend this workshop will identify and learn to avoid common audience awareness blunders.

College Essays and Transfer Applications

1 Session
Wednesday, March 6, 1 - 2 pm

If you want to transfer to a four year university or need to apply for a scholarship, this workshop is for you. Attendees will brainstorm ideas to answer the most common application questions and use a fun exercise to generate relevant and interesting material.

Research Like a Boss!

2 Sessions
Tuesday, March 19, 1 - 2 pm
Wednesday, March 20, 1 - 2 pm

Our very own library (Fasken Learning Resource Center) teams up with the Language Hub to present information on how to find credible sources, evaluate sources to decide if they are factual, and navigate MC's scholarly databases. Students will also receive information about MLA documentation.

Pizza Parties

Each semester, the Language Hub hosts a welcome back party where students can meet the faculty, staff, and peer tutors and find out about workshops and resources the lab will be offering while enjoying a free pizza lunch.
