Student Resources

At Earlham College, we believe in enabling our students to thrive no matter what the circumstance. This is why we provide extensive help in the form of tutors, and open friendly faculty to help make any student's dream a reality. The close collaboration between faculty and students mean that reaching out is always a realistic option.

Tutoring

Other resources include tutoring, which has been offered mostly for the introductory courses (CS128, CS256, and CS310) mostly. However, tutoring also presents an opportunity for students as well. Students are encouraged to tutor as this is a fantastic opportunity to improve one’s teaching skills. In addition, one has the opportunity for one-on-one tutoring if the student feels this is necessary.

MAc Checkout

The MacBook Pro computers are among the most commonly circulated items in the STC collection. Students can check out Macs for up to six hours at a time. Before students or faculty members check out the laptops, they must sign a form describing their rights and responsibilities. Only when a professor takes them for a class may the computers leave the STC area.
