Students in college face a lot of pressure. Between classes and personal lives, studying can get tricky.
In the student learning assistance center, or SLAC Lab, students can manage their studies in a quiet atmosphere.
Located in Room 707 of Moody Learning Center, it provides a number of services that students can use.
Tutors can help guide students in a variety of subjects including: accounting, astronomy, biology, business management, English, English as a Second Language, government, history, physics, psychology, reading, sociology, and Spanish.
Tutors are a mix of work-study students and part-time staff.
There is a computer lab where students can surf the Internet or work on class assignments.
The lab features 68 computers where students can work.
Students also can take make-up tests at SLAC on 36 computers designated for test proctoring. Instructors must reserve the testing stations.
“Students can only take make-up tests,” office supervisor Deborah Harrison said.
All services offered at the SLAC lab are free of charge, except for printing, which requires a GoPrint card or GoPrint online account.
Prints cost 10 cents for black and white and 50 cents for color copies.
Students can even come in to sit and relax “as long as they are not disruptive,” Harrison said.
Drinks are allowed in the lab but they have to be in a bottle with a secure lid. Food is not allowed.
SLAC computer services are open 7:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.
Test proctoring services are open 8 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
