The Savaiano-Cress Language Laboratories offer a variety of media services to foreign-language students. Audio, video and computer equipment are available to students and faculty alike, with the goal of enhancing and expanding the learning experience through the use of instructional media. Hours are flexible to accommodate all students’ needs.
The Math Lab, 371 Jabara Hall, offers free, drop-in mathematics tutoring for WSU students enrolled in the following courses:
Students may work independently knowing that help is available when needed. The Math Lab is staffed by graduate and undergraduate students who are studying mathematics and/or mathematics-related disciplines. No appointment is necessary; students are encouraged to visit the lab during its hours of operation. To determine the hours for the current semester, refer to the schedule posted outside the lab or check the math department’s website (https://wichita.edu/mathlab).
The WSU Writing Center, 601 Lindquist Hall, is free and open to all WSU students. In the Writing Center, all students can meet with a tutor who is either an undergraduate or graduate teaching assistant. While tutors do not proofread or edit, they offer assistance with all aspects of writing, including brainstorming, organization, style and revision, as well as specific writing concerns voiced by the student. A tutoring session lasts about 30 minutes. No appointment is necessary, but appointments may be scheduled by contacting the center at 316-978-3173.
In addition to tutoring, the center is equipped with five computers with Internet access, Windows and Microsoft Word (printing services are not available). Students may also do online writing exercises to help improve basic grammar skills. Reading comprehension exercises are also available in the center.
The Writing Center is open 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m.–4 p.m. on Friday. It opens the second week of classes and closes at the end of the last day of classes each semester. It is not open on study day, during finals or on holidays.
Additionally, the Online Writing Center (OWL) is available for tutoring assistance. Their access link is available through the Writing Center's website. Students should allow their submissions two business days for completion. The OWL's semester availability and closure is the same as the onsite Writing Center's.
