The Knox Learning Center is located on the lower level of Eberly Library. A gift from Martha Knox Ege in memory of her father, the Honorable John Clark Knox, federal judge and distinguished alumnus of Waynesburg University.
The Knox Room houses a computer lab, with 26 networked computers available for general student use and the office of the Tutor Coordinator.
The University provides free peer tutoring. The tutors are students who have had the course or who are currently enrolled in the course and have been recommended by the instructor. Tutoring sessions are scheduled to accomodate the schedules of both the tutors and the students being tutored.
The Knox Learning Center (KLC) offers a variety of services to assist students in making their education successful, rewarding and exciting. The KLC is located on the bottom floor of the Eberly Library and is not only the setting for one of four campus computer labs but also includes a resource library, a study area, the Tutorial Coordinator's Office and a lounge.
The KLC offers free peer tutoring as well as Study Table and Math Table programs. These “Tables” are scheduled hours whereby students have open access to general assistance in skills, development, and content areas. The KLC also offers services in English as a Second Language (ESL), study skill development, and workshops on topics such as career assessment, time management, anxiety & stress, note-taking, test-taking, etc.
The KLC resource library includes textbooks, writing manuals, practice guides, sample tests, researching information and a diversity of information on general academic preparation.
The KLC is set up to encourage students to take advantage of services which will help them maximize their learning experience. A student does not need to be doing poorly in a class to ask for a tutor. On the contrary, tutoring offers students an opportunity to process lecture notes, text readings, and personal perceptions. The dynamic exchange of talking with another student is a great way to learn!
The KLC also administers a “Save Our Student” (SOS) Program. This program is designed to identify students falling behind in a class specifically as a result of poor attendance.
