Student Experience

“As a Dental Hygiene major, I needed all Bs my freshman year. I also had to take difficult classes, like anatomy and physiology and mathematics. I went to the Tutoring Center for these classes, and I truly think this is how I achieved my goal of having a B in each class. The Tutoring Center helped answer any questions or clear any confusion that I had.”
