Free Peer Tutoring
We’re here to help you meet your academic goals, with one-on-one peer support in a positive environment that promotes learning independence. You will be matched with a successful upper-year tutor who can help you get a better understanding of the course material. Tutoring Services also offers a drop-in support centre for writing, mathematics and computers which is available Monday to Friday, 9 am – 4 pm. Drop-in support is located in the Hub, above SAL.
Student Success Mentors
Every school of study provides a mentor to help students achieve academic success. We also have useful seminars on learning skills, time management, career development, and taking the stress out of the transition to College, both for recent high school grads and mature learners returning to school.
Student Access Lab
Our state-of-the-art facility is available to all full-time students. We have more than 120 computers (PCs and Macs) for student use with colour printing, two scanners and up-to-date software, including graphic design programs and AutoCAD. Come by as often as you like to finish and print your assignments, do some research or keep in touch with family and friends.
The Parrott Centre’s extensive collection gives you unlimited access to a wealth of information – everything from traditional print and video resources to online encyclopedias, academic journals and over 28,000 e-books. Our friendly staff can help you with your search. We can set you up with a personal RefWorks account to help organize your research, format citations and prepare bibliographies. You can access our library catalogue and electronic resources from home or around the world. The library is a quiet and welcoming place to study, but it’s not all work, work, work. We’ve also got films on demand – more than 8,000 titles to choose from – and a free wireless hotspot.
