Academic Advising

Academic Advising
Academic advising is an interactive process in which the advisor helps the student set and achieve academic goals and make responsible decisions. Academic advisors offer one-on-one support in areas such as course selection, choice of major, college transition issues, careers or graduate study, and referral to other support services. Academic advising at Taylor is offered in a two-tiered approach: students are assigned a major advisor from their department as well as a general advisor who provides assistance with Foundational Core requirements

General Research Tools

Writing Center
The Writing Center provides peer tutoring in writing from trained writing tutors who work with student writers of all skill levels. Tutors engage with student writers in one-on-one writing discussions, ranging from generating ideas to negotiating editing difficulties. Although we discuss writing, we focus on writers.
Conversing over writing engages the writer in a powerful learning experience, builds up writing skills, improves writing processes, and clarifies the writer’s ideas. Our ultimate goal is to help students become confident and reflective writers. Additionally, tutors provide English language support for non-native speakers, including writing tutoring and assistance with other English language issues.
The Writing Center can help students with the following areas: Figuring out what to write, Making points stronger, Writing an introduction, Adding length to a paper, Crafting a thesis statement, Organizing main points, Improving the flow of a paper, Improving sentence structures, and Quoting, paraphrasing and citing
