What is an Academic Resource Center?

Academic Resource Centers (ARCs) are dynamic spaces in the residence halls that are specifically designed to promote academic success and support. Each ARC has a unique schedule that can include: academic advising, tutoring for common classes, peer advising, seminars, panel discussions, and much more! When not in use for one of these activities, the space is open for group projects and studying.
