Congratulations, Class of 2019!

 The Office of Undergraduate Studies (OUGS) is thrilled to celebrate 50 graduating seniors who have served the Centers for Learning and Academic Success Services. Our student team has supported thousands of their peers as student assistants, tutors, and Supplemental Instruction leaders. It has been incredible to see them go above and beyond despite their busy course schedules to help all students who enter the learning centers. These students are the backbone of the peer-led support offered through OUGS, and we thank them!  

Thank you for joining us in congratulating all of our student staff who will be walking across the graduation stage this weekend.  We send them off with best wishes for happiness and success.  May they enrich the communities they join with their talents, passions, and knowledge. 

Cheers!

This summer, the Office of Undergraduate Studies (OUGS) and the Centers for Learning and Academic Success Services (CLASSwill be preparing for the big move into our new offices and learning spaces. In Fall 2019, OUGS, the Academic Success Center, Math Lab, STEM Student Success Center, and Writing Center are moving to the second floor of the new EL building located at E Barham Dr. and Campus Way across from the Quad. 

  

  • The centers noted above will continue to offer the services students have come to expect in each center.   
  • We will also be expanding our online presence/digital footprint in the future to serve even more students. 
  • Math Lab and STEM Student Success Center will continue to host faculty office hours; please reach out to Math Lab Director Jen Brich (jbrich@csusm.edu) and/or STEM SSC Assistant Coordinator Jasmin Hernandez (jahernandez@csusm.edu) so that we can continue to accommodate the requests. 
  • With the change to the LOTER, the Language Learning Center will close at the end of the 18/19 fiscal year.  Language tutoring will be provided by the Academic Success Center. Details forthcoming.    

We look forward to continued fruitful collaborations with faculty and staff across campus. Our new location and spaces are sure to create new opportunities for collaborations! 

Please reach out to the center directors if you have any center-specific programming questions.
