Mid-term exams have become a ghost of the not too distant past, but its sibling is soon to follow. Tis’ the season for ghosts but unfortunately for this particular occasion, the Ghostbusters aren’t needed.

Final exams are coming up quickly. For students at St. Clair County Community College there are many options for assistance in studying for, and taking these exams.

Many students are already taking advantage of the free tutoring in the Achievement Center (AC). No appointment necessary, tutoring is available on a first come, first serve basis from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.

The AC has tutors available that are proficient in nearly all course offerings on campus. Other services included in the AC are disability services, study materials, a computer lab, and proctored testing.

The AC is located inside the college center.

The library offers multiple areas to study, access to databases, educational materials, quiet study areas, closed door group study rooms, audio/visual equipment and several computer labs.

The group study rooms are useful for three, or more, students who are focused on one area of study.  Within the group study rooms there are white boards, as well as televisions, VHS and DVD players, offering students the opportunity to share via multimedia outlets.

The library is located inside the College Center and can be accessed Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.  Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.  Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
