Writing & Education : How to Avoid Plagiarism

Advice from Students

"...students offered practical tips for future students to improve the quality of their writing, including:

  • Start the research project early.
  • Write a page or two a day and leave time to edit.
  • Plan to finish 2 to 3 days early so you will actually finish on time.
  • For each paper, write a draft, print it out and attack it with a corrective pen. Be merciless!
  • Go to the Writing Center/professor/peer mentor for help.
  • Proof read out loud. It makes all the difference.
  • Don't take the optional extensions on deadlines. They are like crack! Totally addictive! They start a domino effect."
