Self Learning Center


The Self-Learning Center (SLC) is a student-focused learning environment that serves the students of the College, providing access to reserve readings, self-paced learning materials, computers and group-work space.   In addition to housing course reserve materials and a permanent collection of printed and multimedia materials, the SLC makes available planimeters, stereoscopes, handheld magnifying lenses, and protractors for check-out.   Plant specimens, wood sample kits, and aerial photos are available for study while in the SLC.
