Open Study Labs & Mentoring
Open Study Labs
Open study labs are held at various times throughout the day and evening. Open study labs are facilitated by students who have already taken and successfully completed an Iowa Lakes Community College course and have a faculty recommendation. TRiO-SSS participants are welcome to drop-in and take advantage of this opportunity.
The TRiO-SSS Mentoring Community links returning students (mentors) with first time, full-time students in order to build connections that will strengthen and enrich both student experience and success at Iowa Lakes Community College. Mentors offer weekly meeting times and are available to answer questions. Topics that a mentor may cover include:
- Transition to college
- Study skills, time management and other success skills
- Balancing school, work, activities, friends and family
- Getting and staying connected
- Choosing a major
Mentors will hold weekly sessions covering various topics to help you succeed in college. Students who meet with their mentor 11 times or more are eligible to attend our Spring mentoring trip.
Stop in Room 9 in Estherville or Room 240 in Emmetsburg for an updated tutoring schedule.
