Student success is our top priority! The Learning Commons provides library services, tutoring, and college prep programs for Western students. Meet with librarians, specialists, peer tutors, or instructors if you need help finding books or articles for assignments, assistance writing a paper, or help with math or other subjects. We work one-on-one and with small groups to help you gain the skills to succeed in college, jobs and careers, and beyond. The Learning Commons is also a great place to relax between classes, a quiet place to study, and the perfect place to meet with classmates for group projects.
In addition, we are the campus hub for social and emotional support. Access the Cavalier Cupboard food pantry located just inside the main doors, meet with a counselor, find learning support and accommodation services, participate in community activities, or get involved as a volunteer!
Check us out! The Learning Commons will set you up for success!
