Academic Support Center (ASC) Tours and Visits; A201

The ASC will be open for faculty to drop in and learn more about our ASC Tour and Visit initiative.  We invite you to bring classes to the ASC for several reasons: students who hear about the ASC often hear about us through you; students suggest visiting the ASC to get oriented to academic support services; faculty inspire and sometimes incent students to use academic support services; and we’re giving away prizes.  Can’t visit but want to arrange a tour for your class?  Email Angie Dunlap,

Information Technology Services; C114
