The Learning Centre is a busy place. One reason is that many students come to the Learning Centre to
get tutorial help. They come for help in writing, study skills, math and course concepts. Often there are three
to five tutoring pairs working together in the Learning Centre at any one time. Another reason the Learning
Center is so busy is that many students like to use its ten computers. They write papers, do research, check
their email and use the WebCT. So many people want to use the computers that there are often people
standing around and waiting for a free computer. Finally, the reception desk is often busy. People come to the
desk to make and change appointments, to ask for resources and to ask for information about the Learning
Centre. People often have to line up to get help at the reception desk, especially when classes have just
ended. Taken together, then, the tutoring, the computers and the reception desk all contribute to making the
Learning Center a very active place.
