The Academic Success Center, located in Centennial Hall B014, was created to help students succeed academically. As the 'home base' for the ESF Peer Tutoring program, it plays an integral part in providing a variety of academic success services for students to help them realize their educational goals. The ASC offers peer tutoring, Math Center support, Public Speaking Lab, success resources, and a computer cluster.

ASC Resources

Success Resources

The ASC has resource materials to help students with study skills, time management, and test preparation. Students can form a study group and utilize one of the white boards or computers located in the Center.

Computer Lab

The ASC computers are available for tutoring sessions, group study and independent work. Students can utilize the computers to prepare for work on a project or study for an upcoming exam.

ASC Services

Peer Tutoring

Through the Peer Tutoring Program, the service of a qualified undergraduate or graduate tutor may be available to any ESF undergraduate student who feels a need for academic support in meeting the demands of ESF courses in which one is currently enrolled (and SU Physics). Priority is given to lower-division undergraduate courses. Requests for tutoring in specialized courses will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Tutoring is offered in both drop-in large group sessions and individual/small group sessions.

Public Speaking Lab

ESF's Public Speaking Lab (PSL) is a free student to student service that supports the development of undergraduate students' public, academic, and professional speaking skills. PSL tutors work with students to develop successful presentations (from outlines to visual aids). The lab also functions as a rehearsal space and team room where groups of students can meet to plan, practice, film, and review presentations with or without a tutor. Located in 105B Moon Library!

Math Lab

The Math Lab is designed to assist students with Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and other math courses taught at ESF. This space located in the ASC is staffed by the Math Department and students can drop-in with questions on homework or to gain clarity before a quiz or exam. For questions specific to the services offered in the Math Lab, students should connect with Professor Nasri Abdel-Aziz, coordinator of the Math Lab.
