Welcome to all of our new students getting started in the College of Business for the spring semester! About 30 students attended today’s orientation session. Here is Jane Bessette presenting about the work that she does with students.

I promised that I would post the various links that I talked about in today’s session:

I often see students who express concerns about some facet of their lives (academics, family, friends, living situation), and I refer many of them to the Counseling Services center on campus. Every student who is enrolled in more than six credits at Nevada pays a $35 Counseling Services fee. I hope that students will be more likely to use services that they have already paid for.

Counseling Services offers assistance to students in a number of areas, like substance abuse and international student concerns; and formats, such as individual counseling and couples counseling. If you are experiencing any emotional issues or have a concern about something that is impacting your relationships, academics or general well-being, please consider utilizing Counseling Services.


The Writing Center is one more campus resource aimed at helping students succeed. The Writing Center offers 30 or 60 minute appointments with writing tutors. These individuals, usually undergraduate or graduate students with a background in English writing, can review your work and help with any phase of the writing process including developing ideas, constructing outlines, basic editing, and reviewing final drafts. The Writing Center is another FREE service for students.

As a student I learned that anything that helped me get an earlier start on a project was a good thing. I’m sure that I’m not the only one out there who has grappled with the P-word, something that I hear about all the time in the advising office… procrastination. Anyway, I often share my own personal experience with students and tell them that, for me, tutoring was as good for learning concepts that I had missed in class as it was a way to keep on top of the homework. Turning to the Writing Center for help may do the same thing for you. Don’t wait until tomorrow to get started on your next paper, and don’t forget about the Writing Center.


The Mathematics Center is currently open in Ansari Business Building Room 610 from 8:00am to 5:00pm for walk-in tutoring. The Math Center features 20 computers with up-to-date math and statistics software and tutors to assist students with math and statistics. You must bring a student ID to use the Math Center!

You can access ongoing tutoring or drop-in tutoring for math and stats trough the Tutoring Center as well. The Math Center is a great option if you need help with a problem or concept, or if you need access to computers or software for a class.
