Raising Awareness of MBU’s Tutoring Services

The Academic Success Center hosted an Open House recently, drawing dozens of students and showcasing the various educational assistance offerings the center makes available every day.


The Academic Success Center opened its doors to students and faculty this past Wednesday for an annual open house that offered many activities for visitors to learn what the ASC has to offer.

The ASC staff uses the open house to educate visitors on the services offered, including tutoring services, writing lab services, testing services and study skills development.

The annual event took place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Room 117 of the Field Academic Hall.

ASC Testing Coordinator Kinsey McKibbin, who attended the event, said she hopes these types of events will help students become more aware of the ASC’s services.

“My favorite part of the open house was having a full office of students just checking us out. I feel like we still have to fight for recognition,” she said. “The students that come to us, come to us consistently and they love our services, but getting those new students in here that first time seems to be the most difficult task.”

McKibbin was impressed with the turn-out at this year’s event, as a total of 41 people attended, including staff.

“The students really seemed to be enjoying themselves,” she said. “We had games, trivia and study skill assessments. It seemed like lots of fun was being had.”

The ASC hosts several events throughout the year, including writing lab workshops, which in the past included rock climbing and massage therapy.

Their hope is that these types of events will continue to help the ASC gain recognition at MBU.
