QUEST Program

The QUEST Tutoring program is an academic peer-tutoring support program created and maintained by Salem College faculty and staff.

Writing Center

The Salem College Writing Center (SCWC) welcomes any student who needs a sounding board or help expressing thoughts. We work with any form of writing, from research papers to resumes to love letters. We view clients as people instead of appointments, and we work to make better writers instead of better papers. The SCWC is a safe space, so bring your work, grab some candy, and take a seat!

  • To make an appointment at the SCWC and learn about upcoming writing workshops, visit this page.
  • Appointments are either 30 minutes or one hour.
  • You may request a generic appointment or you may request a tutor of your choice.
