The Learning Center - Join Our Community of Learners!

The Learning Center is on the 1st floor of the Ron E. Lewis Library. We encourage you to make an appointment with a tutor, but walk-ins are welcome.

When you arrive, please check-in with your LSCO student ID. To help us serve you best, bring a copy of your assignment and any necessary texts and materials. We will do our best to answer your questions or help you locate the resources you need. 

The Learning Center follows sanitation and social distancing precautions to combat the spread of COVID-19. Face masks are required for all students and visitors.
