The Learning Resources Center, located in the Faculty Office Building (FOB 104-105), is the home of the Writing Center, Study-Skills Center, Disability-Resources Center, and Tutoring Center.

Free tutoring in various subject areas is available. (Tutoring depends upon availability of tutors and funding. The Center cannot guarantee that a tutor will be immediately available for the subject that you have in mind.)

Walk-in help with academic matters is also available. You do not need an appointment. However, when you stop by without an appointment, please bear with us. Dr. Lou Ann Sears, the Center director, may be helping someone else or on her way to a meeting, etc.

You are welcome to take the free handouts, borrow the videotapes and audiocassettes, use the tutorial software (pre-algebra, grammar, paper writing, study skills, etc.), and use the computers for paper writing, and other academic pursuits.

The Writing Center is designed to help students during every step of the writing process. A multitude of handouts and books is available for students' use.
