Students interested in a space to work independently on assignments or study in groups can visit the Algebra Lab, Reading and Writing Lab, Composition/ESL Lab, and Accounting Lab on campus. Staffed by tutors and faculty, they provide students with less individual assistance than one-on-one tutoring in an open lab setting. Students can drop in without an appointment. Hours for labs may be subject to change.
