LSSC Learning Centers

By: Sarah Oulman

Most students aren’t aware, but there are facilities on each campus which provide free tutoring and assistance. The LSSC Learning Centers are designed to help students excel in their classes, provide quiet areas to study, and more; however, many have never utilized these resources.

The staff includes paid tutors and volunteers who specialize in a variety of subjects. Whether you need help on your homework or don’t know how to study for your test, the tutors are always available.

In addition to tutoring, the staff provides Rosetta Stone tablets to anyone who wants to practice a foreign language. In fact, you don’t even have to be taking a foreign language class to do so. The Learning Centers also have equipment for students with disabilities and quiet rooms for those who want to reserve a space for group study sessions.

Unfortunately, many students don’t know these services are available. Lexie Johnston and Christina Lott, students at the Leesburg Campus, told me that neither of them have gone to the Learning Centers for help. According to Lott, “Most students know about the Learning Center, that I know of, and they use it when they need to.” Meanwhile, Johnston told me that she knew many students “who don’t know where [The Learning Center] is or what they offer.”

While some have discovered what the Learning Centers offer, many others haven’t. Next time you’re struggling with homework or can’t grasp a concept from your lectures, head over to the Learning Center on your campus!

CLERMONT, Florida – Aldon Baker, one of the most well-known and successful trainers within the Supercross community, is currently training several of the sport’s top riders at his facility, which is located in the Clermont area. In an interview at this training facility, Baker gave a glimpse into what it is actually like to train these professional riders.             When I asked Baker about his journey to becoming a trainer in his field, he explained that he initially trained individuals, specifically bicyclists, using cardio and strength conditioning techniques. Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

“A Diagnosis Isn’t the End.”
At TEDxLSSC this past weekend, Army veteran and full-time LSSC student, James Thomas Simons struck the audience with the gravity of mental health in his speech  “It’s time to change the way we think (and talk) about mental health.” From talking about Simon’s experiences with his mental health to sharing how 2/3 of the population never seek help, he inspires the audience by bringing positive awareness to mental health and those who suffer from its various forms. Even though he “[believed] that [mental illness] would label [him] as a failure,” he sought help and support. Despite his thoughts that post-traumatic stress disorder would make people see him as “a weapon with the safety broken,” Simons encourages others that it isn’t the end- that a diagnosis isn’t the final verdict.              Mental…
