Student Success Center
The Gordon State College Student Success Center is committed to helping our students achieve academic and personal success. Our mission is to support students at any level and of any ability in their course work and in the development of personal skills that will help them achieve their academic and life goals. To that end, we offer drop-in tutoring for writing, math, and science along with a series of academic success/personal skills workshops—all free of charge. Students may use the thirty computers available in the Center for academic purposes. We are located on the second floor of the Student Center Building, above the Gordon State College Bookstore.
