Learning Center

Knowledge and Skills

The Learning Center provides a space for students to meet with peer tutors, get feedback on assignments, schedule group study sessions, and work with faculty outside the classroom.

Because the Learning Center is located on the second floor of the CIC Library, students have ready access to research material – both print and online – and easy contact with library professionals who can answer questions and identify additional resources.

Whether you need a quiet study space to focus on your reading or a collaborative environment to solve problems with your classmates, the Learning Center is an ideal place for scholarship.

Location and Hours of Operation

The Learning Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Max E. Benitz Library. Appointments are free to students and occur on a walk-in basis.
