As the campus hub where students and faculty work as a team to achieve common academic goals, the purpose of the Learning Support Center is to empower students. Filled from morning until the evening with first year students as well as those returning to college to advance or change careers, this former 1950's science building has become the place on campus to study or simply hang out between classes and should serve as a model for other community colleges.
