Academic Centers for Excellence
Purpose of the Academic Centers for Excellence
The purpose of the Academic Centers for Excellence is to help every Wabash Man become the best Gentlemen they can become; we are here to help you excel and grow. When you want to become a stronger writer, better in math and science, or when you struggle to achieve the quality of work you demand of yourself, visit one of the Academic Support Services.
Services are free and open to all Wabash Men.
The Writing Center is dedicated to helping the entire Wabash community become better writers. We are eager to work with all students, regardless of standing, major, course, or writing level. All writers benefit from quality feedback, and we want you to share your writing with us.
We suggest faculty recommend all of their students to visit the Writing Center for their writing. We are happy to work with struggling writers, but we also enjoy working with experienced writers who want to hone their prose.
Disability Services is the most helpful to students with special needs when students identify their needs before they begin classes. Once the student is on campus, Coordinator Heather Thrush is available to work with him at any point in the academic year. Students vary in their need for consultation and guidance by the coordinator.
Wabash, like all colleges and universities, requires documentation of a disability if a student is to receive accommodation for his disability. The documentation is kept on file in the office of Disability Services and is confidential. It is the decision of the student whether or not to request accommodation, and it is his responsibility to provide acceptable documentation and notify the relevant staff members of his condition and of his desire for accommodation(s).
It is extremely helpful for a student's advisor and professors to be aware of his learning differences. Please contact Heather Thrush in Center Hall room 112A to arrange a meeting and discuss how Disability Services can help you excel as a Wabash Man.
The Quantitative Skills Center (QSC) provides peer tutoring for any student enrolled in a mathematics, science, or economics course.
The Office of Student Enrichment (OSE) provides Wabash Men with one-on-one counseling regarding time management skills, study skills, reading skills, and Academic Honesty. The OSE also offers one-on-one support for English Language Learners (ELL)
In addition to directly supporting the needs of Wabash Men, the OSE also partners with student and campus organizations to host student-centered activities, including the Wabash Stress Fight Nights.
