The Noʻeau Center is holding an open house to help students and others get acquainted with its many services.
Stop by from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 22 and 23 to meet Noʻeau’s team of tutors, have some refreshments and food, and ask questions about center support services. The Noʻeau Center is located on the second floor of the James & Abigail Campbell Library in B-203.
Visitors will also have a chance to win school supplies and a $25 gift card good at the campus bookstore. All they need to do is participate in a few tasks to have a chance to win.
The center takes an innovative approach to helping students through peer-tutoring, workshops building learning skills, and testing. The two-day event is open to the UH West Oʻahu campus community as a way to get the word out about the center and to help students familiarize themselves with the center, its staff, and services. The center supports students attending on-campus classes as well as those taking online courses.
The center provides three main services:
- Tutoring: After starting with math and writing, the center opened up tutoring in all subjects in fall 2013. Tutoring is conducted in-person and online.
- Testing: Noʻeau Center administers the math placement test for incoming students and also proctors exams for all UH System students. The center last year was certified as a College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) test site.
- Workshops: Workshops are offered in-house via request. Students can take a look at our workshop guide and request for one, but the Center mostly has workshops in-class at the request of professors, or students can access online workshops 24/7 on any device within the center.
Additionally, the Center typically schedules three main events each semester–Open House; West and Welaxation (a mid-semester event that helps students deal unwind during midterms); and Cram Jam (students receive extra support to study with extended tutoring hours, group study sessions, and faculty-led sessions).
The center provides service to roughly half of the student body population each semester. The open house is sponsored by the Student Activity Fee Board.
