New Learning Commons Quickly Becomes Heart of Campus
Students are loving the new Learning Commons in the Begley Building!
What do you like about this great new space on campus?
“I come to the Learning Commons mostly early in the morning for an online class. If
I have any questions, I can join the video and talk here in a quiet place.”
Lorenzo Cruz, Aviation Science
“I’m in the Learning Commons every day. It’s a comfortable place to work. I eat lunch
downstairs. I haven’t used Tutoring Services yet, but I’m sure I will at some point.”
Tony Verdichizzi, Hotel and Restaurant Management
“I use the computers and printer, free tutoring, and it’s a good space to do homework.
I like using the computers better than the laptop and I can print the things I need
Mercedes Laura, Health Studies
“I come in the morning before I go to class. I like to sit down. It’s quiet. After
class I can go over what the professors just went through in my classes. I see what
homework I have to do, and bring my laptop and do it.”
Kaitlyn Bliss, Culinary Arts
“I come here to work on classes in general. I like the quiet space.
