Engineering Student Success Center provides space and resources to give engineering students an ‘extra boost’
By Alexis Schlindwein, COMM ’13
Along a back-lit whiteboard spanning the length of the room, a tutor works a statistics problem. At the next table, students are working through thermodynamics homework. In the study room at back, a group of engineers are focused on acing the next electric circuits exam.
Take a stroll through the first floor of Haggerty Hall any evening during the week and it will be clear to see — this is the place for engineers to be.
It’s home to the Engineering Student Success Center, which first opened its doors for the spring 2018 semester. More than just a physical space with plenty of tables, chairs and whiteboards, the center is a place where engineering students can go for drop-in, peer-to-peer tutoring and academic support.
