Everything Old is New Again
The Writing Center at Casper College in Casper, Wyoming, has a new home in the old college bookstore. Co-directors Karen Moenkhaus and Darby Sawyer were given the opportunity to design and furnish our new digs. We chose a color scheme of navy blue and lime green. Because this is a large space, we had the freedom to be creative and used artwork from our Visual Arts Department.
The entry way has an appealing sitting lounge area with couches, chairs, and tables.
Book shelves separate off the tutoring area with five spacious areas for individual or group tutoring sessions.
The new computer area hosts nine computers, comfortable chairs, and bistro tables that are perfect for students who want to drop in to complete homework assignments. Two smaller rooms furnished with monitors, computers, and cameras allow students to practice oral
presentations and receive feedback. We even have a classroom that is perfect for English classes and for other instructors to bring students in for workshops on writing.
Our tutors and students feel at home in our new area.
