Welcome Back Fall 2014

Welcome back Griffins! Whether completely new to the campus or a returning student, everyone is back to school this semester and ready to learn. Grossmont College is getting back in gear with many upcoming events, and the Campus Calendar is full. Here is a list of helpful resources the campus offers that many students might not know about.

Need to Study?
The library/tech mall (LRTC building) is located right above the main quad in the center of the school. Not only is the library helpful, but there’s a computer lab with free Internet available to all students with a login, which is the same as WebAdvisor. Students may also print from the tech mall, for about 25 cents a page. The center is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Fridays, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s closed on the weekends.

Need Help in Math?
Need help in math, but can’t afford a tutor? Free math tutoring is offered to all Grossmont College students, and it is located in Room 70-112 and 70-113 of the LRTC building. Same hours as the tech mall, but if extra help is needed to students in Math 88 and Math 97, Room 70-113 is only open from noon to 5 p.m.

Got a Headache?
When students enroll they are required to pay a mandatory “health and enrollment fee,” which is usually around $19. That fee entitles students to get any resources they might need during the semester that are available in the nurses’ office, like Tylenol or Advil. The health center is located in The Griffin Center.

Get Involved!
Stop by the ASGC office in The Griffin Center to pick up a ASGC Benefit Card. The student benefit card costs $12 for the whole semester and gives special discounts like coffee, tea, hot chocolate and popcorn from the ASGC office for only 50 cents, and 10 percent off the cafeteria, Java Market, Cafe 200 or Griffin Cafe.
