Transcript We've been keeping a CAMPUS SECRET Ever wonder where your Student Service fees go? Well, to find out, just drop in at Learning Support Services (LSS) in the Social Work Building or their Satellite location. Actually, LSS was only one of 24 departments vying for a portion of that fee you see on your Not all students...were on the bottom rung of the scholastic ladder. bill each semester. But with a surprisingly small amount of funding and a relatively small staff, LSS provided a safety net of support and tutoring services...FREE to all students. The official motto of LSS, according to Director Patrick Daniel, is "Students Helping Students." Tutors were currently enrolled graduate students or upper-level students with overall GPAs of at least 3.0, and at least 3.25 in their 22%%%Student Life academic majors. They must be recommended by at least two faculty members, and must have effective communication skills. They are also required to attend 12 hours of training each semester. The success rate of students, who receive tutoring and support from the center was impressive. Overall, students, who employed their services, have GPAs that are higher as a group than the rest of the student body. And Daniel insists that LSS was as good for the university as it was for the students. It promoted higher graduation rates, scholastic abilities and GPAs and recruits successful candidiates for graduate school. Not all students, who take advantage of everything LSS has to offer, were on the bottom rung of the scholastic ladder. Students with GPAs from 0.0 to 4.0 visit, and the tutoring style mirrors the learning style of the individual seeking help. It is not by definition "remedial." Many good students attend tutorials because they want to learn the material, not just get by and get out. If one-on-one tutoring was not your style, LSS conducted several work shops every semester on a wide array of subjects, including improving your memory, time management, note taking, reading skills, test anxiety, math anxiety and how to study physics. In addition, there were study groups assembled by student referrals from faculty members. These groups gave struggling students, who were sometimes hampered or intimidated by the university atmosphere, a connection with the institution. This minimized the "computer college" mentality. There are also master's level psychological counselors available. Students were overwhelmed by university requirements like deadlines, assignments, required reading volume, instructor's high expectations, examination difficulty levels, grading policies and faculty member's teaching styles. That's why LSS exists—all the services are available to help you become a more effective student. And that's why we are blowing the lid off the best kept secret on campus. -Susan Spring The tutors at LSS were upper-level or graduate students who maintain a certain GPA. Their one-on-one tutorial style helped thousands of students who were overwhelmed by a large university atmosphere.
