Programs in English as a Second Language is offering an English as a Second Language Support Lab for international students and scholars who may need language-related support in their courses, reading and writing assignments.

The lab can also assist students with understanding homework or assigned projects from ESL or academic classes; understanding difficult reading passages from textbooks or other materials; brainstorming ideas for projects or formal essays; revising formal essays; incorporating and properly citing resources in formal essays; and improving grammar and vocabulary in assignments.
