Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is located in Luther Library and offers a wide variety of academic services to help students be successful in their classes.

Students are encouraged to utilize these free resources to submit their best writing assignment or study alongside an upperclassman who has excelled in your academic discipline.

The Learning Lab provides students with academic support for many subjects and disciplines. The Learning Lab Consultants are current Midland students who have been recommended by faculty members because they have excelled in their coursework. The consultants will offer time for individual appointments, exam review sessions, iPad assistance, and they can discuss possible study skills strategies.

Academic Support Websites

Here are some helpful links that students may find beneficial.

How to Study

This website will provide helpful information on note-taking, time management, reducing stress, and much more. You can select the topics that you want to explore.

Online Writing Lab (OWL) 

The OWL Writing Lab is a nationally recognized website. Here, students can receive 24/7 assistance with writing questions, generate APA or MLA citations, and use the practice exercises to correct common writing errors. Our Writing Lab consultants are familiar with this website and can guide you through the available resources.

Blank Study Schedule

This link provides a blank study schedule so that students can organize their time. Proper time management is critical to success in college. This is particularly true at Midland since so many students are involved in athletics and the ARTS. Students can print this form to identify daily study hours.
