Welcome to the summer semester of 2015! It may or may not have been a while since you’ve been on campus, but either way, it’s always good to have a refresher on things! Some of you may not know about the great resources SCF has! Below I will list the top 3 resources that are helping me through my college days!
1. Academic Resource Center: http://www.scf.edu/studentservices/AcademicResourceCenter/default.asp
Why pay for a private tutor when you have a whole building of tutors waiting to help out with whatever you need. I have been to the ARC many times, and each tutor I’ve had, was great! Some of the tutors are students, just like us, so, this makes the session run a bit smoother because they may have taken the exact class you have and know what the professor expects. Even with the tutors who aren’t students, the session is still great because they only want what is best for the student. These tutors can help you in any department and will not be satisfied until they know you are comfortable with what you needed help on. They want you to walk out of there with a sense of confidence and relief! Make sure you use this resource!

2. Student Services Center: http://www.scf.edu/StudentServices/default.asp
This is my go to building for everything! Before I started classes at SCF, I had to make sure I had all the right paper work in. I was in this building for days before my actual semester started. I had to visit finical aid and admissions quit frequently, but they never got tired of seeing my face and they were very friendly. As the year went on I found myself in this building again, in search of a job at the career resource center. With the help of the great staff in there, I got this great opportunity as a student intern! I was also in advising a couple of times, to make sure I was selecting the right classes for each semester. They were patient with my many questions, and I am confident that I am headed in the right direction for graduation and transferring to USF. Also in this building you will be able to find educational records, assessment/testing, international student services, veteran services, disability resource center, cashier and other support functions.

3. Library: http://libguides.scf.edu/c.php?g=120269
Some people study at home, some study at the beach, but for me, this was my favorite study place. The library is quiet and relaxing, so, this makes it easier for me to focus. I also think this is a great study spot because every resource you need is right there. From books to online articles, it’s all in the library. This is also a great place to work on group projects. Whatever it is that needs to be done, it can be done in this great spot…the library.

Please remember, everyone, these resources are here for YOU, so. take advantage of them! Have a great semester.
