As students were off for the summer – enjoying warm temperatures, taking a well-deserved break from school and making money through summer jobs – projects and activities in Milne Library went into overdrive.
One of many moves within the library positively affected the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE). Relocated to a larger space (what once was the Genesee Valley Study Room) and enhanced by additional services, the CAE is realizing its dream of becoming a one-stop academic stop for students.
Students should feel free to stop in if they need assistance in any of the following services:
- Testing (offered through Disability Services)
- Subject-related tutoring (for AOP and student athletes)
- English for Speakers of Other Languages
- Referrals to department-specific tutors
Enhanced features of the CAE include a student concierge service that will serve as the welcoming point into the center, on-the-spot writing support (no longer on an appointment basis), an almost sound-proof testing center, and closer proximity for essential academic support units so that easier transition can take place between course content, research and writing.
Reference Librarians are currently providing research assistance in the CAE and all other services will begin in earnest, starting September 6.
For further information and hours of operation, see the newly created homepage for the Center for Academic Excellence.
