WSU Vancouver campus services support student success

Bill Stahley, Student Resource Center academic coordinator, suggests students make use of campus learning resources. The following study centers and tutoring services are available all semester and most are free of charge to students.

Quantitative Skills Center
More commonly known to students as the Math Lab, this free service helps students with math and related subjects. Located in the Undergraduate building, Room 102, the Math Lab is the place to find teachers, tutors and other struggling math students. Tutors who specialize in physics, chemistry and statistics are available at varying times throughout the week. Check the Quantitative Skills Center site at vancouver.wsu.edu for a complete schedule. No appointment is needed. The center is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and 9 a.m. – 3 p.m, Friday.

Tutoring in Spanish, chemistry, physics, psychology, math and accounting is available through the Student Resource Center. One-hour sessions cost $10. Visit the SRC website under “Tutoring & Learning Support” and complete the online tutor request form. Free supplemental instruction is available for Chemistry 105 and 345, Computer Science 121 and Physics 101. Supplemental instruction leaders usually hold office hours and additional sessions before exams. See the Quantitative Skills Center for additional assisted-study options. For more information, contact the SRC at 546-9155 or src@vancouver.wsu.edu.

Writing Center
Need a little help on your essay? The Writing Center is a place where students can drop in and get one-on-one help from a writing specialist. The center is located in the Library building, Room 203. It is furnished with study tables and couches and offers a collection of writing reference books. Appointments may be made in advance but are not necessary. Writing Center staff prefers to meet students in person, but electronic review is also available at writingcenter@vancouver.wsu.edu. Papers and a description of the assignment must be emailed in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format. Students are asked to allow two days for a reply. The center is open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Friday, and noon – 5 p.m., Sunday.
