Students are already taking advantage of the student learning assistance center, or SLAC lab.

Coordinator Geraldo “Jerry” Guerra said the lab is almost at capacity 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Mondays and Fridays. With staff cut from about 37 to 16 people, they do their best to accommodate students.

Guerra described the remodeled lab, which  opened after spring break in March, as “more open and functional.”

The new area houses about 68 computers and offers laptop tables with outlets. All services are free to students except printing, which is 10 cents per page for black and white and 50 cents for color.

Seven tutors are available to assist in college-level English, Spanish and speech. Students can set appointments at the front desk or by phone. Students need a Banner ID and course number to be matched with a tutor.

Hours are 8 a.m.-8 p.m Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday and 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday in Room 707 of Moody Learning Center.
