What does Learning Support do?

Learning Support is here to help students with any question you might have with the software we offer on campus or that you already use every day. We give one-on-one lessons to students who want extensive help with any program, we answer quick questions for walk-ins, and we offer larger classes on various topics and software. Essentially, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your education in the 21st century world!
