The primary goal of the Academic Resource Center or ARC, (located in Miege Hall, Room 101), is to aid students in becoming effective learners. The ARC helps students improve their performance in the critical areas of reading, writing, and all levels of mathematics. In addition, the ARC strives to provide tutors to assist students in a wide range of academic disciplines, including business, accounting, nursing, chemistry, and biology.
The ARC also hosts seminars on “student survival skills” which include time management, stress management, note-taking, and test-preparation. These small-group seminars introduce students to the wide range of abilities needed to succeed in university life. In addition to these seminars, students are encouraged to meet with ARC staff members to discuss any concerns that may be impeding their academic progress. The ARC provides students with a comfortable, distraction-free environment for studying that includes computer and Internet access. In addition, the ARC is certified by Educational Testing Service and Brigham Young University to proctor exams for high schools, colleges, and universities throughout the country.
