SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Today marks the seventh day of the #NotAgainSU protests. While students continue to protest, SU’s writing center administrator Ben Erwin is providing drop-in appointments for students at The Barnes Center that need help with assignments.
“The majority of students we serve in the center are multilingual students, international students, and students of color. Many of the same students who are currently involved in the ongoing protests,” Erwin said.
Erwin says the goal of The Writing Center is to make themselves available to as many students as possible, now more than ever with finals being in just a few weeks.
“Their classes haven’t stopped, their assignments haven’t stopped, we are hoping to provide as little disruption of our services for students as well,” Erwin said.
The Writing Center is continuing to provide help throughout the protest, and will extend appointment time and availability throughout finals week.
