Expository Writing lab hours
As indicated in your class schedule.
- The Pilots lab, located in 116 Bluemont Hall, offers study and test preparation help from well trained, experienced students: the peer assistants (PAs).
- Program students receive individual assistance and group study sessions from peer assistants and lab instructors.
- Computers and a printer are available for student use.
The Writing Lab
- The Writing Lab is designed for all Pilots students enrolled in Expository Writing I.
- It is taught by instructors with experience in the Expository Writing program at K-State.
- It offers students extra help on their writing assignments.
All students in all labs are expected to adhere to the following guidelines.
- Students are expected to spend a minimum of two 50-minute sessions in the study labs per week, regardless of the amount of time spent in writing lab. Sign-up sheets for PA time are located next to the student folder crate in the PA lab. Students are welcome to use computers in the lab for personal use (if they follow computer lab guidelines), but this time will not be counted as mandatory lab time.
- Students are responsible for having Pilots staff sign them in and out immediately upon entering or leaving the labs. Do not assume that the staff member has noticed you, and do not simply leave the lab. Without a staff signature, time in the lab will not count toward a grade.
- Lab sessions must be used to study or complete class assignments.
- Cell phones and video games are not allowed in the lab.
- Students are expected to maintain a studious atmosphere in the Pilots Labs. Disruptive students will be asked to leave and will forfeit their points for that time frame.
- Students are responsible for adhering to the K-State code of student conduct. Copies of the code are posted in both labs and online.
- Students are responsible for adhering to the K-State Information Technology usage policy.
- Students are expected to keep in mind both the student code of conduct and the ITAC usage policy when sending messages to the Pilots listserv. The Pilots listserv is to be used for class and lab-related discussions.
- Students working on class assignments have priority for computer use.
- Students may e-mail from the lab, but e-mail will not be considered a priority unless it is directly connected to a class assignment. E-mailing will not be considered part of PA or study time.
- Internet surfing (not related to course studies) will be allowed only if students are NOT signed in for study time. Priority for computer use will be given to students who need computers for course work.
- Downloading material onto computer hard drives from the Internet is strictly prohibited.
- All work must be saved on personal devices. Any work saved on the hard drive will be deleted on a weekly basis.
- Printing of materials is limited to 10 pages per day.
- Absolutely no food or drink is permitted on or near the computer tables.
