About the Natural Sciences Learning Center

The NSLC is a study center for A & S students. It is located close to the Biology teaching laboratories and classrooms on the ground floor of the Life Sciences building. It includes a student lounge, a computer classroom, two conference rooms, and six multi-purpose rooms for TA's office hours, tutoring groups and studying. The Center is a "home base" for our freshman and sophomore students taking Bio 2960 (Principles of Biology I), and Bio 2970 (Principles of Biology II) but other students are welcome to use it.
