8:00 AM until 5:00 PM



Help the Learning Center celebrate and recognize our tutors, supplemental instruction leaders, structured learning assistance leaders, Writing Center coaches, Math Center leaders, mentors, student managers and receptionists during Tutoring Week, Oct. 6-11.

There will be activities going on all week in the Learning Center, located in the lower level of the Shouldice Library, room 112.

Activities include:
- Send a thank you note to your favorite tutor, writing or math center coach or SI/SLA leader. Let them know how much you appreciate their help! Blank cards are available for you to use in the Learning Center, or you can sign the white board in the main room.
- The Writing Center is sponsoring the "50-Word Fiction" writing contest. The challenge is a whole story, a whole moment, communicated in 50 words only; so, words must be chose carefully and the title counts! The contest is open to everyone. Bring your entries to the Learning Center by noon on Friday.
- What is a tree of knowledge and how does it grow? Stop by the Learning Center and watch as our tree turns into a colorful autumn collection of inspiring ideas to be a successful Laker.
- Win a prize through random student sign-ins at the Learning Center! Contests go all week long.

Join the Learning Center students and staff from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. for today's open house. Join us for this celebration of the wonderful student staff of the Learning Center. All, faculty, staff and students are invited. There will be great food!

*When I Knew* Video Presentation

10:00 AM until 3:00 PM


Description: LSSU Counseling Services presents the video "When I Knew" in conjunction with National Coming Out Day. "When I Knew" asks one simple question - when did you know that you're gay? The video brings together 16 different people for an intimate group discussion. Although some of the stories project a sense of loss, most are proud affirmations of sexual identity, supporting the fact that recognizing and embracing ones sexual orientation is essential to being true to oneself. Counseling Services will be showing this video twice today -- at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Students should expect to be there for about an hour.
