With mere weeks left in the semester and final papers, projects, and tests looming, students are pressing stressed-out noses to the grindstone. While some may turn to CliffsNotes and Wikipedia in a frenzied panic, there’s also an often overlooked resource available: Learning Support Services. Although it’s ordinarily on the first floor of the Crane Liberal Arts building on campus, through the Fall 2015 school semester it can be found in Room 108 of the Student Center.
