The average student who roams the college’s halls may be unaware of the many free services offered to students on campus. Just by being a student, a whole vault of tools is opened to make the time spent here enjoyable and aid each students education.
The Student Programs staff works to bring students activities for all purposes—recreation, education, entertainment and health and wellness. Just walking into the office in room C210 a student can find student ID cards, calendars and a number of other items geared toward each students’ success.
Any struggling student has an array of study help at their fingertips. The Academic Resource Center offers one-on-one and group tutoring sessions as well as having drop-in hours for any sudden issues that may need solving. Likewise, the writing center staff is available to help with idea development and revision for essays and papers a student could be having trouble with.
Students and staff around Pierce College have worked to create numerous clubs and organizations to fit each student’s specialties as well. Some are educational and others purely for recreation. However, there should be a club to suit people of all different interests. If not, visit Student Programs and ask about starting a new club.
The library on campus also offers countless resources to students. Computers with internet, printers, quiet study space and books are all offered within. The computer centers provide more computers for students to utilize, whatever their need may be.
Practice rooms in the Arts and Allied Health building are available for musicians with a few extra minutes. Students also can make use of the group study rooms.
Campus security also proves to be a useful resource for many reasons such as providing jumpstarts to dead car batteries or escort to any evening students who may be uncomfortable walking to their cars alone.
