What resources are available to me through the Academic Resource Center?
The John C. Ford Academic Resource Center (ARC) is staffed by professionals who are experts in writing and study skills. Contact the ARC for help with time management strategies, note taking techniques, practicing proven test taking tips, taking a study skills workshop, or signing up for one-on-one academic counseling in reaching your academic and personal goals. Professional and peer tutors work with students one-on-one or in small groups to help them master course material and study skills. We believe ALL students would benefit from one or more of the ARC's programs and we invite students to use our resources.
