Academic Resource Centers
One of the little known facts of being a successful adult is knowing how to use your resources. This stands in contrast to the idea that going off to college means being "independent" and doing everything by yourself. Part of independence actually involves being resourceful and asking questions when you are stuck.
Grinnell's academics are demanding. That means that everyone has questions from time to time. Even your faculty ask each other questions. Seeking out answers is part of being successful.
At Grinnell, besides your faculty and the staff that support your in-and out-of-classroom experiences, there are other amazing resources to turn to. In particular, Academic Resource Centers (ARC) are a network of learning centers where students can hone a variety of academic skills. Check out resources for students in writing, reading, all academic subjects, and time management/study skills.
