The Writing Center
Category: Alumni Author: Aly Bedford Date: 1 year ago Comments: 0

The Writing Center provides free, personalized writing support through individualized consultations, and is available to Alums! 
Perhaps you are working on a grant proposal or residency application, need help polishing a cover letter, resume, or preparing a speech –  The Writing Center welcomes you!

Visit face-to-face by scheduling an appointment or submit online using their Cornish email. The Writing Center staff respectfully requests these simple courtesies: 

  1. Be thoughtful about the frequency with which they seek feedback, especially during mid-term and finals week.
  2. Be aware that during busy times of the semester we may need to prioritize currently enrolled students. In practice, this may mean it takes us a few days to get back to you with video feedback, rather than 24 hours, or we need to find an alternative time to meet with you. We’ll let you know if that’s the case.

NEW! We have an online Alumni Directory! The Alumni Directory is a secure way to share your information with your fellow Alums. This site is exclusively for Cornish Alumni and requires a password to sign in.

Have you ever wondered what a certain Alum has been up to, wanted to get in touch with a project idea, job offer, or residency which would be perfect for them? If they’ve created a profile, you’ll see them. 

The Alumni Directory is a secure way to reconnect with classmates you haven’t seen in years (decades?), network, find or offer that new job.

If you’re wanting to be a part of the Cornish community again, or want to get more people back in the fold, here is where you can do it – even reach out one-on-one to a specific Alum.

We invite you to take a moment right now, set up your profile here. and get reconnected with your Cornish Alums!  Questions? 
Just email for further assistance.
