Also, you may get some great tips on some information you might want to add into your paper. You are often given time in class to have your peers edit and provide assistance, but it is also important to take the time outside of class to go to your peers and have them edit. Not only can you get peers to help you, but the writing center is a great way to get assistance and get help. The writing center is located in the library and is very helpful. The writing center is definitely a resource that should be used more often and used by more people.
