Experiential Learning Commons

Brevard College firmly believes each student—whether maintaining a 4.0 or struggling for a 2.0—can achieve academic, professional, and personal success with the right tools and initiative. In the Experiential Learning Commons (ELC), you can develop those tools by going to a career workshop, working on studying techniques, getting tutored by a fellow student, or meeting with professional staff for an individualized academic plan.  Here you’ll be warmly greeted by passionate staff and like-minded students who want to see you achieve your goals. The ELC also houses the Office of Career Exploration and Development, where experienced staff aid students in developing a career path to follow from their first day at Brevard to their first day on the job.

Experiential Opportunities in the ELC

  • Receive one-on-one individualized attention from academic coordinators, student tutors, and even professors whenever you need it. Schedule an appointment or simply stop by during scheduled tutoring hours.
  • Visit the writing or math lab (staffed by both faculty and peer tutors) for revision a final paper or one-on-one help with your algebra homework.
  • Check out a variety of academic resource materials to prepare for graduate entrance exams, develop study strategies, and improve performance in current courses.
  • Develop leadership and job experience by tutoring your peers as an upper-class student.
