Services currently available to students at the STEM Learning Center include:

  • Tutoring in many STEM subjects from our MESA (Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement) tutors. They can help students with Chemistry, Math and Physics. For tutoring hours, please see the attachment.
  • Chem Draw software is available for students to use on the four computers we have in the STEM Learning Center.
  • Meet with our STEM Peer Mentors, experienced STEM students who understand what you're going through and can answer your questions about campus resources. Please see the attachment for their drop-in hours.
  • The STEM Learning Center is a quiet place to study and has the added benefit of being located directly adjacent to STEM faculty offices.
