Lopata Center - Enrichment Opportunities

The LRC strives to service all students. In addition to tutoring, the LRC provides several enrichment activities to give students the opportunity to enhance their learning. We sponsor such activities as:

Special Speakers/Seminars

The LRC also offers a variety of enrichment activities such as special discipline-related workshops (i.e., "How to Solve Math Word Problems, "Creative Writing", etc.) or guest speakers on special topics that relate to academic majors (i.e., "Compliance with the ADA as it Relates to the Medical Field", etc.).

Student Success Workshops

The LRC provides Student Success Workshops throughout the quarter on topics such as basic computer skills (e-mail, saving to a disk, etc.), using the Microsoft Office Suite, general study skills, note taking, and test taking. These workshops are short and interactive and provide students the opportunity to take their skills to the next level or brush up on basic skills they already have.

Classroom Presentations/Workshops

The LRC offers faculty the opportunity to have classroom visits/presentations. The LRC makes several visits to classes at the beginning of each quarter to publicize the services provided. Special presentations on such topics as study skills, time management, PowerPoint, etc. may also be requested throughout the quarter. All requests are made through the Director of the LRC.

Extra Credit Opportunities

The LRC offers students the opportunity to earn extra credit in their classes for attending a tutoring session. Students should have the extra-credit voucher form stamped by the front reception desk of the LRC and submit it to their instructor. Extra credit points or the amount of points is granted at the discretion of each instructor.
