How To Write

Writing Center

Your primary resource for writing tips should be the Troy University Writing Center, located in the Student Success Center on the Troy Campus. They also maintain a web site, with handouts and guidelines.

Global Campus Library

The TROY Library web page maintains a list of excellent links to writing resources.

Using Word Processing Software

Your writing often has to follow MLA or APA style guidelines. Those guidelines have been summarized by the Writing Center (see above). However, you should make it your goal to let your word processing software handle the formatting and layout -- you need to focus on the content!

Letting Microsoft Word (or other software) take care of such things as line spacing, indentation, numbering, bibliography, etc. will save you a lot of time. In addition, competency in these features will serve you well in your business career also.

Word processing tips are all gathered on their own page.
