Time is fast approaching when those pesky papers and reports will be due. Some of the more technical assignments may require a separate abstract along with the body of your paper. Writing abstracts is quite common for students in natural and social science courses, and is a beneficial skill for students in any discipline. Although abstract writing might vary a bit from discipline to discipline, an abstract almost always serves as an original, concise, self-contained statement that explains or describes a larger work. Writing one can be a difficult task. Luckily, the WAC Committee is offering a student workshop on Wednesday, November 10, on the art of writing abstracts. The workshop lasts less than an hour, from 12 noon until 12:50PM, and there is plenty of seating in 8-200. Come and bring along a friend. It will be time well spent when you sit down to write that paper in the coming weeks.
