SAW Center

Located on the main level of Dwight in the Mediated Educational Work Space (MEWS), the SAW Center is a place where students work together with skilled peer mentors to speak confidently, argue persuasively, and write with clarity. SAW mentors are students who have undergone a rigorous training program. They help their peers by working intensively with students on projects and papers at every step in the process, from brainstorming to revising. Students can also practice presentations, speeches, interviews, and more with a SAW mentor. The SAW Center is open 6 days a week during the academic year and is utilized by over 700 students each semester.
