The Academic Success Center on Seminole State College of Florida’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus will have a new home starting in the Spring Term.
As part of a collegewide construction and renovation project taking place throughout the Fall Term, the Academic Success Center will relocate from building L to building J, room 109.
Construction and renovations on the new location are expected to be finished as Winter Break approaches, and equipment will be transferred shortly thereafter. The new Academic Success Center will open for service on Jan. 11, 2016, and an open house will take place later that month.
“Our vision was to create a space that was truly designed for our students – one where they would feel comfortable and want to spend time completing their assignments, working with classmates and getting their work done,” says Joseph Huston, director of the Academic Success Center.
The new location will feature brand-new furniture and a 40-station computer lab arranged in an open layout that will provide a more comfortable space in which students can study and work. The center will also include a writing studio where students can get help on written assignments, and a specialized science lab fully stocked with models, microscopes, texts, study aides and more. Lounge areas will be available for student groups to gather and collaborate, and other technology – such as tablet computers – will be available for students to check out.
In addition to the renovations to the room itself, the restrooms and corridors surrounding the new Academic Success Center will be upgraded.
The Academic Success Center will continue to offer the same services, including tutoring, workshops, supplemental instruction, technical support, classroom-embedded tutors and online tutoring services.
