How can I improve my college paper writing?

Writing is a very important part of college. Almost every course requires some form of writing papers or short answer questions in class, so it's very important to practice on a continual basis. Writing is just like going to the gym and just like working a muscle. The more you write, and the more that people look at your work and offer you helpful critiques, the better that you get. There are learning centers available on most campuses, and that involves going to a tutor who will help you. They won't write your paper for you, but they will read over your material and offer you very helpful suggestions about how you can make your writing more clear and concise, and sometimes more of an academic style. People tend to write how they speak, and in college it's very important that you learn how to write for college courses.
