One thing everyone can likely agree on is that college is not cheap. The costs attached to each semester are not only for tuition and living, but so that each college student is able to utilize all the opportunities and academic centers that are affiliated with the school. Here are just some of the places and services on campus that should, without a doubt, be used to our advantage (and to maximize what you’re paying for).

1.) The Writing Center — The Department of English and Philosophy developed the writing center as a way to help students brainstorm, revise work and proofread. If you feel as though you need help with any kind of writing assignment, there are faculty members there, Monday through Friday. Students are welcome to stop in at any point during the week, or they can set up an appointment by using the sign-up sheet located directly outside the center (room 275 in Baron-Forness). 

2.) Tutoring services — There are multiple departments on campus that offer tutoring services for a variety of subjects, such as math, psychology, anthropology, chemistry and many more. Tutoring hours for various subjects are posted on Edinboro’s website, at, along with being in the Smarthinking program located in the myEdinboro portal.

3.) 24/7 open art buildings — The art buildings on campus, Loveland and Doucette, are open 24/7 to students. There are multiple art rooms and computer labs that are ideal for getting late-night work done. If you feel as though you may be disturbing your roommate late at night while you work, these buildings are nice to escape to.

4.) The gym — A healthy body makes for a healthy mind, and the campus gym has a way to fulfill your exercise needs in a variety of ways. Located in the Pogue Student Center, the gym offers a multitude of equipment, such as treadmills, ellipticals and weights, as well as two open gymnasiums with an open track located upstairs and a rock climbing wall next door. 

5.) The global education office — If you’re interested in studying abroad, this would be a good place to acquire all the information you need. The faculty members located on the second floor of Baron-Forness in the learning commons can assist you in receiving formal approval for study abroad programs. You can also access information through global education, located within the myEdinboro portal.
