Work-study students keep BioSpot running until tutors replaced.
Dan Hansen, biology program coordinator, is working to hire enough work-study students and tutors to keep the BioSpot operating.
The lab, in Room 350 of Chance Academic Center, is a study facility providing students with resources and materials to assist students with reviewing lab assignments.
Two work-study students keep the facility running for biology students, but a tutor was transferred to the chemistry lab. Work-study students schedule hours throughout the day for full coverage.
The BioSpot is a walk-in lab and students can check out materials overnight, but a valid college ID is required. Some items are for in-house use only.
Three study rooms are available for individual and group studying.
Students are allowed to have drinks in the general main room and coffee is also provided. BioSpot can accommodate 30 people.
The computer lab can accommodate 32 students, and 16 students can use four private study rooms, which also have chalkboards if they need to use them. A proctored testing center is also available in the lab.
Students can use tutorials for topics discussed in class, but professors may provide other resources and slide presentations to review. Model skeleton and human organs as well as microscopes are also available to students.
Students should check office hours before showing up, but the regular hours of operation are 8 a.m.–5:45 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and 8 a.m.–3 p.m. Friday.
