NEW Wellness Initiative - Aromatherapy

We are introducing aromatherapy to boost our patrons' concentration and overall sense of well-being. For a few hours during the day, we are diffusing two types of essential oils (a citrus blend and a balancing blend). If you have any scent sensitity that could be negatively afffected by essential oil diffusion, please let us know ahead of time, so we can make sure that the diffuser is turned off when you come to the Writing Center. Please call 410-706-7725 or email us at


3rd Floor Construction in the Campus Center

The 3rd floor of the SMC Campus Center is currently undergoing renovation. A significant part of that work is demolition work, and it is hapening right next to Writng Center. We will remain open during this time of renovation, but we might need to move face-to-face consultations on an ad-hoc basis to a different location in the building or to the library.
