The Beacon program provides academic assistance via regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated group study sessions.  Beacon tutors are key people in the program; ARC faculty recruit the tutors. The tutors have demonstrated competence in the course(s) they tutor and are trained to facilitate learning. 

The Beacon sessions are comprised of students of varying academic abilities.  Beacon is not viewed as remedial.  Students who attend Beacon sessions discover appropriate application of learning strategies, like note taking, graphic organization, questioning techniques, vocabulary acquisition, problem solving and test preparation among others. 

In order to maintain a pleasant learning environment inside the LRC, please refrain from talking on cell phones.  Please note: only ennrolled students may use the facility  and services. You may also review the information from the Office of Student Conduct
