College Excel, a nationally recognized support
program for college-age youth, recently inaugurated its new classroom
and coaching facility, The Academic Center for Excellence.
The 1,500 square-foot Academic Center for Excellence includes tutoring
and study rooms, an intimate 15-student classroom, a computer lab
with eight fully equipped workstations, wireless Internet for students
to use with personal laptops and the College Excel academic offices.
"From the warmth of the fireplace to the contemporary design,
we've built every aspect of The Academic Center for Excellence
to create a comfortable, welcoming environment where students feel
free to work and to discover their individual learning styles," says
Sue Harless, College Excel academic director and co-founder. "The
Academic Center for Excellence is not institutional. This
is an engaging place that creates an enticing atmosphere in which
students want to learn."
The Academic Center for Excellence is strategically situated adjacent
to Oregon State University - Cascades and Central Oregon Community
College, where College Excel students can take additional courses
and tutoring, and minutes from College Excel's Community House,
where students receive personal guidance and daily support from
CE's team of certified life coaches.
