Student Housing and Residence Life is partnering with the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center (VMASC) in order to bring tutoring to the residence halls. Beginning on September 17th the class of 2021 will be able to attend free educational assistance sessions in the comforts of their residence hall. This partnership will bring residence life and the tutoring lab together in order to increase academic success in a safe and comfortable space. This partnership is accommodating to all students who are overwhelmed with the schedules of their busy college life.

Beginning on September 17th and continuing throughout the fall semester, students and tutors will be able to meet in the Cahaba Room of the New Freshman Residence Hall. This innovative way of studying will make a great impact on your student who may find it hard to stop by the VSMAC in-between classes. The subjects provided for are common amongst freshman as well as other undergraduate students.

Various subjects and times will be available for your student to receive free academic assistance. Between 6:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, and Physics will be available. Students will be required to sign in and out of the front desk of New Freshman Residence Hall and into the tutoring Space. Students who are visiting the residence hall for tutoring will not be permitted to access any other area of the building without the proper sign in.

This experience is for the student who may be a little nervous going to the tutoring lab for the first time. It can be for a student who just has not found the time to ask for help, either way this partnership between Student Housing and Residence Life and the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center will positively impact the students on campus. It will allow for them to find the educational assistance they need within the privacy and comforts of their residence hall.
