Happy Spring, y'all! Welcome to the Learning Commons!

If you haven't yet visited us, the Learning Commons is open Monday - Thursday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and 8:00 am to 4:30 pm on Fridays (both in-person and via Zoom).  We are closed several Fridays during the summer; for a detailed schedule and links to the writing Zoom room, click on the "Hours and Contact Information" tab on the left. 

Check back frequently for information that is just in time to help you with your writing classes! If there's anything we can do to help you with writing assignments for any course, don't hesitate to pop into our writing Zoom room or make an appointment.
