About the STEM Center


 If you're studying science, technology, engineering, math, accounting or economics, we have knowledgeable tutors who can help.  All services in the STEM Center are free. 

An Inviting and Comfortable Place

The STEM Center Main Lab is an inviting and comfortable place for students to  get help with astronomy, mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology.

    • Want to grab lunch while you work?  We’ve got a microwave, and you are welcome to eat while you work with our instructors.
    • Need a quiet space?  We’ve got a place for that.  The Quiet  room, where no conversations or tutoring are permitted, to accomodate students that need a quiet area to study.
    • Need a private study space?  Our small study rooms allow for quiet conversation without distraction.
    • Need some help with a vexing problem?  Our instructors are scheduled throughout the day to help you one-on-one, and we can also schedule time to help your study group on a weekly basis.
