Students struggling with math can get help in three labs on campus. Two are in McCreless Hall with the math department, and a third is in Oppenheimer Academic Center.
McCreless was closed for the summer because of flooding, so Room 218 of Oppenheimer became a lab. Chair Said Fariabi said this computer lab will stay open this fall despite its distance from the department. Tutoring is available on a walk-in basis 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-noon Friday.
Room 121 of McCreless Hall is for students in developmental math courses from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.–2 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.–2 p.m. Saturday.
Room 124 is open for college-level students 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.–noon Friday.
Music freshman Christopher Eguia said most instructors don’t go over problems step by step, and it’s good to know there are tutors willing to stop and explain each step.
“To be honest, I wouldn’t be using the labs if it weren’t required for my math course, but I do believe the labs provide a reliable service for all students, and I would highly recommend then to anyone with a problem in math,” Eguia said.
