With finals on the horizon, who among us can turn their nose up at a little bit of help making the grade? Certainly not me. Luckily, campus offers plenty of resources to help students get the best grades possible. Here are a few:
The Writing Center
The Writing Center is in the Braithwaite Building room 204 and in the first floor of the library in front of Jerry’s Cafe. The Braithwaite location is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library is open Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Writing Center is there to help with all essay needs, but focus more on content and flow of essays than the grammar part. Maybe put essays through Grammarly before going to them.
Outlines, rough drafts and final drafts are all welcome.
The Speech and Presentation Center
Similar to the Writing Center, the SAPC will help with any portion of a speech or presentation. Students can come in with topic ideas, outlines or full presentations.
The SAPC is located across from the P.E. building, in the same building as the Outdoor Rental Garage, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m. until noon on Fridays. Appointments are preferred and are set up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tutoring Center
The Tutoring Center is across from the Testing Center in the ELC in room 204, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Subjects offered include math, biology, the sciences and accounting. More subjects, and the schedule of their tutors, can be found here.
The Center also offers weekly one-on-one tutoring and charges $10 for a 50 minute tutoring session.
All professors are required to have office hours. Use them! Visit professors to see what else can be done to raise grades and help those assignments that you struggle with.
