Welcome Generation Z!

The cool thing about a community college is that many generations are represented in the classroom. We all know Millenials (Generation X) have been center stage for a while, but now, there's a new kid on the block: Generation Z! Born in 1995 or later, Generation Z has a distinctly different profile than their big kid counterpart, Millenials. Uniquely expert on the internet and deeply affected by the Great Recession, Generation Z-ers are stressed out self-starters who love YouTube! Learn more in Related Links. No worries Gen Z, the learning center has you covered!

The writing center is a favorite among students—here's why

Writing center tutors go over written work to help students improve their ability to articulate ideas into written words and provide help at any phase of the writing process. Writing tutors are located in two places on campus:

  • The library in Room C-3051 where tutoring is provided on a walk-in basis, no appointment needed.
  • Inside the learning center in Room A-1044, where students can both schedule an appointment or walk-in (subject to tutor availability).

Fall semester, 390 students took advantage of writing center services. We look forward to working with you, too! Students can schedule a writing center appointment on the Student Tab in myLakeland Schedule It.

Math-in-minutes means exactly that

If you think you're bad at time management, here's some good news...

In college, time management is key to academic success. For some students, it’s a frustrating skill to master. According to Dr. Katherine Bezinger, “some people’s brains are naturally wired for maintaining order, while others’ aren’t.” The good news is, through something Bezinger calls “persistent practice," you can rewire your brain to be better at time management and organization. Encouraging news, right? Stop by the learning center in Room A-1044 to get personalized guidance applying time management strategies. Learn more about Bezinger’s research in Related Links.
