The ARC helps students take control of their educational experience. We help with reading, writing and study skills, as well as time and stress management. We connect students with writing and academic program mentors and assist with special accommodations.

We help you develop and foster the tools and critical-thinking skills needed to succeed in a rigorous academic environment.

Learning should be a dynamic, interactive process. So at the ARC, we don’t just tell you what to do — we partner with you.

Mentoring Sessions in Writing

Many students who visit the ARC are working on papers for their classes. Our peer mentors can help at any point in the process — from the idea stage to the final draft.

During a session, you might engage in a variety of activities — brainstorming, free writing, outlining, reverse outlining, drawing concept maps, reading your paper out loud, etc. Your mentor will help you discover what methods work best for you and your project.

The ARC is a welcoming, friendly place, and we look forward to helping you make the most of your time at Sweet Briar.
