The Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers a full range of services designed to help students succeed duruing their college experience. Students generally find they need academic support in several areas: writing and tutoring related to course content.
WRITING is a major part of being in college. Students write a lot of reflection and research papers. Good writing requires students to be clear and concise in conveying their thoughts and ideas. In addition, employers frequently expect their employees to possess good communication skills. So being a good writer is imperative for success in college and future employement. The Writing Center has a corps of peer consultants who assist students with improving their writing skills. The center is located in the George R. White Library & Learning Center (GRW-216). Students can stop in during weekly operating hours. Appointments can be arranged with Heidi Scheer, Writing Center director. You may set up an appointment in person, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling (503-280-8133).
Students periodically experience challenges with content in their coursework. Subject tutoring is available through the ARC.
