"The Learning Commons is a life saver! I would have never passed Level Three [Nursing] without my tutor's help. She was so sweet and really cared about whether or not I understood the material."
"I love SI [Supplemental Instruction]! It's so fun I almost forgot I was learning! I wish they offered it for every class!"
"I will never again turn in a writing assignment without having it reviewed in the Learning Commons. I always thought I was a strong writer, but now I see how easy it is to miss my own mistakes! I owe the Learning Commons for my high paper grades!"
For more information, please contact Dr. Theresa Spanella, Learning Commons Coordinator, at 886-6566 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
