Extra support to help students through finals week

Here are some resources that are available to all students to make this time easier:

It will also have extended Sunday hours, from noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Students may also visit the Academic Success Center where tutoring is offered. ASC sessions are in-person in the Wilson Library, and have drop-in torturing hours will be extended during finals. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Students also can access 24-seven online tutoring through Blackboard via the service “Tutor Me.”

Counseling and Psychological Services on campus will also be offering virtual appointments to students who are stressed or need some support through finals, by appointment. CAPS is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and also offers Mental Health Mondays, Zoom workshops that cover various mental health topics. Monday’s workshops will focus on mental preparation for finals.

An earlier version of this story misstated the schedule for Wilson Library’s extended hours. Sunday, Dec. 12, is currently the only day with extended hours. If more are added, that information will be available at library.laverne.edu. The Campus Times regrets the error.
