My favorite spot on campus: The Writing Center

Posted on January 14, 2015 by David Clement '15.

Delaware Valley University has an expansive campus that combines the best of the natural world and modern structures. A campus that is made to be eco-friendly and forward-thinking; yet is respectful to the past generations, thanks to a socially conscious community. It’s difficult to select a favorite acre of DelVal’s campus, let alone a single favorite place. After a long time thinking about campus, I decided my favorite spot on campus is our Writing Center, in Miller Hall. It’s a place for guidance on creative endeavors as well as academic projects. It’s where you can hone your writing skills with the help of the in-house wordsmiths of DelVal.
