SPACES DESIGNED FOR YOUR LEARNING
The Writing, Tutoring & Math Center Suite (McQuade 346-8) has been configured with your learning in mind.
348 McQuade Library: Comfortable Study Spaces, Collaborative Spaces, and Computing Zone
Enter 348 McQuade Library, the main doors of the Writing, Tutoring and Math Centers. On your right will be low tables and comfortable chairs – through our collaborative space, where we can accommodate groups of 4-6 students and where most of our STEM tutoring occurs. This is also our resource space, with computers for programming needs, textbooks and reference books, and postcards containing valuable tips you can take with you to assist you in studying and completing assignments.
346 McQuade Library: One-on-One and Individual Workspace
Scheduled for a quieter one-on-one session or need a place to work without interruption? Proceed into 346 McQuade Library, where most writing consultations occur. Here we have one-on-one tutoring spaces and individual workspace.
352 McQuade Library: Prepare for Presentations, Practice and Conduct Interviews
Visit “The Fishbowl,” a conference room with a full-size television monitor, equipped with Apple AirPlay, where you can build and practice group presentations for your classes, participate in mock interviews—or hold real ones! One-hour reservations can be made through TutorAIRS (where you schedule math and other tutoring).
21C is a reminder that we live in an information-based society, and that lifelong learning beyond the classroom is essential.
Instead of worrying about what you don’t know, didn’t learn or don’t think you can do, focus on building these skills to show the world what you can do. Maximize your study time and find new ways to learn more course content. Advance your reading, writing and arithmetic skills. Explore the world of information to make strong choices in your research selections.
Tomorrow’s employers expect you to have these lifelong learning traits and skills, no matter what career path you choose. So spend time with us: keep learning, and discover more ways to shape your future.
