Residential Living

Academic Support

Residential Living is committed to your academic success.  We assist you in a number of ways:  providing study areas in each residence hall, placing computer labs in the basement of each residence hall, and developing programs which assist you in developing and enhancing study skills.

Two of our best known academic support programs are the ARC to Success Program and the Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs). Another academic program is called ACES (Achieving Career Exploration through Service).

The residence hall Study Buddy program, started in fall 1999, makes available a list of individuals within your residence hall who are taking the same courses as you. Lists are posted Residential Living SharePoint folders (which only residents of your hall may see) and provide the course, section number and the names and UWSP email addresses of individuals in each. If a resident does not wish to be included on the list, signing a waiver at the beginning of each semester will remove their name (or contact the program coordinator).

Locating a good study environment is key to most students’ success.  There is a study lounge located in the basement of your hall and one in the University Center.  And, remember to utilize the Learning Resource Center.  Don’t forget -- your right to study in your own room at anytime of the day is a priority. 

There are a number of resources on campus designed to assist students at all levels – freshmen to graduate students.  The Tutoring-Learning Center utilizes peer tutoring and is located in the basement of the Learning Resources Center (room 018).

The Student Academic Advising Center is a main resource for students who aren’t sure what they want to major in.  And, the Center maintains a library of materials on academic programs at other institutions.  They are located in 103 Student Services Center.
