Blackburn’s Academic Support Services are largely based in Lumpkin Learning Commons. Staffed primarily by student-tutors, support services provide academic assistance to students of all majors and class standings. Students may walk in for a one-on-one consultation with Learning Commons Coordinator Barbara Clark. The Commons also offers study sessions, CO 105 (College 101) and the Writer’s Block.
Peer tutors hold weekly sessions around campus to help students study for specific courses. Students who attend these sessions learn essential strategies for academic success. To view a schedule of tutoring and study sessions for all departments and disciplines, click here
CO 105 (College 101) teaches new students to produce college-level schoolwork through group tutoring sessions and weekly meetings.
The Writer’s Block is open to any student who needs help writing a paper. Trained writing assistants hold open hours in the Block to organize and sharpen written work. They also facilitate small group workshops.
