In addition to tutoring, the Center for Academic Support and Tutoring offers free workshops in a range of subject areas.  See below for our current offerings!


J.K. Watson Scholarship Writing Workshop

Location: NH 451 CAST

There are many opportunities for students to explore new areas of interest, but none like the J.K. Watson Fellowship. If you are considering applying to become a Watson Fellow, we highly suggest attending CAST’s Watson specific Writing Workshop tailored to address the specific prompts on the application. Marymount Manhattan has had a high rate of matriculating Watson scholars with the help of CAST’s writing resources. The Workshop is designed to discuss the angle, proper syntax, and formatting for the 500, 200, and visual essays with additional feedback on drafts.
