SSU Writing Center

Salem State's Marty G. Walsh Writing Center is located in room 113 of the Frederick E. Berry Library and Learning Commons on North Campus. When you come in through the main doors of the building, make a hard right turn before going through the security gates into the Library, and head for the sign that says Center for Academic Excellence. The Writing Center is to the left of the CAE.
