What is it?
Microsoft Word is a “word processor” — that is, it is a tool for writing and editing documents.
Where do I get it?
You can purchase the entire Microsoft Office suite (including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint) from the St. Mark’s Book Store (at a steeply-discounted price: usually around $35).
What do I do with it?
Writing is a journey, not a destination (although, periodically, you will have some key destinations to visit along the way, as papers come due). The basic flow is mapped below. Click each “station” for more information.
